Trainer: Charles Atkins, MD
As the opioid epidemic continues to evolve and, sadly, worsen, clinicians must familiarize themselves with current best practices that include the use of medications for opioid use disorders. This session provides an overview of opioid use disorders, the current FDA approved medications for their treatment (buprenorphine, methadone, and naltrexone XR), as well as the use of naloxone (Narcan) to reverse overdoses.
Strategies to address high-risk situations will be discussed along with a review of abstinence-only and harm reduction approaches. Specific techniques to identify and clarify a client’s goals will be presented, along with the importance of peer, family, wellness, clinical, and other supports to aid in the recovery process.
This training consists of Part 8 of the Psychopharmacology: Truth, Recovery & Wellness series with Dr. Charles Atkins. Although you are welcome to take more than one course, you are not required to take all 8 sessions, nor are you required to take them in consecutive order.
