Medication-Assisted Treatment Symposium

Learn about medications used to treat opioid use disorder, that are used in conjunction with counseling and other forms of substance abuse treatment. These medications have been found to reduce the risk of fatal overdose, reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms, improve retention in treatment services, and reduce the transmission of disease (such as HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C). Also learn about local Yavapai County efforts to increase the utilization of this evidence-based practice and how you can get involved! Who should attend? •    Behavioral health providers • Medical providers •         Members of the general public •               Local business or political leaders •          Criminal justice professionals •  Those with an opioid use disorder or in recovery from an opioid use disorder •    All others concerned about the opioid epidemic!
