This course is a live, interactive webinar held on Friday, April 7, 2023 from 1-3pm Eastern Daylight Time.
Registration closes at midnight (EST) the day before the event
Opiate abuse has become a significant problem for our country. Unlike many other substances, there are medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and recovery options for those that struggle with opiate use disorder. This can also create challenges as the traditional “abstinence-based” model of treatment may not be applicable for this population. This session will provide a broad overview of opiates and their differences; the different MAT options for clients; and how SUD counselors can best provide treatment services to them. Challenges with the abstinence-based model and the 12-step community will be explored.
This session is specifically designed for counselors and will provide participants with basic understanding of MAT for opiate use disorder. Participants can expect to learn some fundamental strategies for working with this population and how to provide services within a group and individual setting as well as how MAT may fit into the treatment plan as a whole.
