Opiate use disorder is common, with significant clinical consequences (~70k overdose deaths/year in the US). Therapy is a critical part of a compressive, effective treatment program. Medications have been shown to have important clinical benefit, but are often overlooked parts of a treatment plan.
This workshop will discuss the goals of treatment, as well as the role medications play in treatment. We will discuss risks and benefits of various medication approaches, as well as what the therapist can expect to see as a result of these medications. Lastly, the role of effective therapy (and how this can be structured) in the overall treatment of opiate use disorder will be reviewed and discussed. Schedule:
