Technology for the Treatment of Substance Use Disorders

Road to Recovery is an annual conference that takes place during National Recovery Month and highlights hot topics within the field of addiction psychiatry. As the world currently faces many physical barriers to accessing treatment, the use of technology to treat substance abuse continues to grow rapidly.

This year's conference will feature sessions focused on the use of technology to treat and prevent substance abuse, ranging from telehealth for substance use disorders, evidence-based mobile interventions, technology-based harm reduction tools, and wearable devices that predict substance use.
