New England PTTC will be co-Sponsoring the March installment of Maine’s Governor Janet Mills’ Opioid Response Summit Seminar Series, which will be focused on the topic of the intersection of brain injury and substance use disorder. The seminar is being conducted in partnership and featured speakers from the Maine/New Hampshire chapter of the Brain Injury Association of America.


Along with the epidemic of overdoses, there has been a parallel rise in sustained and often permanent cognitive disability resulting from a loss of oxygen to the brain. This webinar will provide an overview of the relationship between brain injury and substance use, and introduce the practical steps providers can take to recognize the cognitive impact of overdoses.  New resources to support provider screening, assessment, and intervention will be introduced.


Presenter: Carolyn Lemsky, Ph.D.,C.Psych ABPP-CN

Moderator: Steve Wade, MBA - Consulting Executive Director, Brain Injury Association of America – Maine Chapter
