How it works

If your program is interested in utilizing Motivo’s services, please reach out to Samantha Lewis.

Motivo will hand-select the best supervisor for your staff based on their program’s needs.

Once matched, supervision will commence on Motivo’s HIPAA-compliant video platform where sessions are scheduled and attended, supervision notes are kept and hours are tracked towards licensure.

You’ll have access to Acadia’s employer dashboard, which provides you tools to track and document supervision in adherence to state licensure requirements.

Clinical supervision that makes a difference.
