Medicated Assisted Treatment: Enhancing the Potential for Recovery - NYC

Northeast & Caribbean Basin ATTC


Educational Event: According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, over 20 million people in 2015 met the criteria for substance use disorder (SUD). Research shows that a greater amount is at high risk levels of consumption and related health problems. This interactive training will review SUD diagnosis criteria, the impact of SUD on the brain and compulsivity factor, as well as specific signs and symptoms for alcohol and opioid use disorders (AUD, OUD). The content will further explain how medication assisted treatment (MAT) works, why it's the most effective treatment for OUD and AUD, and includes skills building activities that will help providers to effectively inform clients on how MAT increases a person's opportunity for sustainability of their recovery. Please note: OASAS announced that effective January 1, 2018, CASACs will be required to complete a new one-time, 3-hour requirement for Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) training- this training does not fulfill this requirement.
