ABOUT THE WEBINAR & SPEAKERS

Webinar Description

TITLE: Always Black or White? Advances in Sciences & Medications for SUD Treatment
WHEN: July 30, 2014 1:00 PM ET

 
SUD treatment often falls into one of two broad categories: abstinence-based or medication-assisted treatment. Unfortunately, the decision to guide a client to one or the other approach is not always based on current scientific evidence.
 
This session will present current advances in differential therapeutics (which treatment for different clients), scientific advances in medication therapy and science-based monitoring as considerations in selecting SUD treatment for individual clients to optimize outcomes.
 
Learning objectives:

  • Define the concept of “differential therapeutics”.
  • Analyze an evidenced based approach to differential therapeutics in the treatment of substance abuse.
  • Identify the gaps in knowledge that limit the evidence based approach to differential therapeutics in substance abuse treatment.
