With the dramatic increases in overdose deaths during the pandemic, while practitioners and programs are encouraged to increase access to medications for opioid or alcohol use disorders (MOUD, MAUD), explaining the effective intervention to communities in need has been identified as one of the major challenges of behavioral health.

This interactive virtual training will review the impact of chronic opioid use, cognitive impairment, compulsivity factors, and physical dependence for OUD and AUD. Content will discuss myths associated with medications used to treat OUD and a review of available and effective interventions. The content uses experiential activities that help participants integrate a public health approach to effectively explain MOUD to clients and their families.

Credits: Participants must attend the session in its entirety, turn on their video cameras, and actively participate in order to receive a certificate of completion. This training meets approval for 3 renewal hours (CASAC, CPP, CPS) and 3 initial hours (CPP, CPS) through New York State’s Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS).
