This article presents the Alcohol and Other Drugs Education Program (ADEP) as a model for faculty training in evidence-based alcohol and other drug (AOD) identification and treatment. We make the case that AOD use is a serious social and public health issue and highlight faculty training as a strategic approach for addressing the pressing demand for clinical professionals who can provide AOD-related services. In turn, we describe the core elements of ADEP, including the program’s foundational assumptions and logic, guiding principles and design, situating ADEP within the context of other efforts to improve the quality of AOD-related clinical care.
