The Northeast and Caribbean Prevention Technology Transfer Center is offering an in-person training:

Medicated Assisted Treatment: Enhancing the Potential for Recovery

 

 

Medicated assisted treatment is considered to be the most effective treatment for individuals who have an opioid use disorder. As a secondary prevention strategy, it is imperative that providers understand how medicated assisted treatment works in order to effectively communicate its benefits to persons with opioid use disorders and make appropriate referrals. 

 

This interactive 6-hour training will review the impact of chronic opioid use on the brain, cognitive impairment, compulsivity factors, and physical dependence of opioid use disorder, and how medication assisted treatment effectively addresses the various symptoms of opioid use. 

 

Participants will engage in experiential activities that will help build skills in communicating the effectiveness of medicated assisted treatment, and review the essential elements of successful treatment referrals that will help facilitate a pathway to attainable and sustainable recovery for persons with opioid use disorder.

 

This training will be held on April 4th, 9:00AM -4:00PM at Rutgers School of Social Work, 390 George Street, New Brunswick, NJ 08901.
