Substance Use Disorder Services In The Days Of A Pandemic: You Need A Bigger Boat!

Providing SUD services during a pandemic requires a mix of disaster preparedness, safety precautions, telehealth, and ethics.

She is currently applying this experience in an outpatient treatment service that includes medication-assisted treatment in rural Wisconsin during the COVID19 pandemic.

Webinar participants will learn about:

  • Safety precautions
  • How to move all services to telehealth
