Evidence-Based Practice for Opioid Use Disorder: Barriers and Promising Directions
April 15, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Opioid use disorder (OUD) is a complex illness that requires comprehensive services to promote recovery. Ideally, these services include evidence-based medication treatment to manage opioid-related cravings and withdrawal, treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders, and case management to facilitate other psychosocial services. However, these services are rarely accessed in the same setting, burdened by a lack of trained providers, difficult to afford without health insurance, and commonly undermined by poor coordination between health professionals. This webinar will review standards of care, and barriers and promising directions for interdisciplinary OUD treatment, using direct examples from the presenter’s research.
