America has hit a grim milestone in the long-standing drug crisis, with more drug overdose deaths over a one-year period than ever before. Given the scope of the current crisis, it is more important than ever that we collaborate to close gaps in access to coverage, referrals, treatment, and recovery support to combat the disturbing trends in substance use disorder (SUD).​

During the presentation, we’ll discuss:
• Leveraging technology to meet patients where they are and connect them with a close-knit community of peers to support recovery from SUD
• Considerations for special populations – such as women and children and justice-referred populations
• The necessity of integrated care between healthcare providers and community programs for overall improved outcomes
• The role that Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) play in treatment and recovery success

The presentation will benefit addiction counselors, social workers, and any others involved in the management of patients with SUD.

Target Audience
  • Social Workers
  • Psychologists
  • Addiction Counselors
Learning Objectives
