  • A review of new Substance Use Disorder Licensing Rules

  • An open discussion on the state of our youth, targeted prevention responses in the education system, and family help programs.

  • Opportunities for physicians and pharmacists to further their SUD patient engagement. Discussion on quality metrics, coordinating care between Behavioral Health and Physical Health care settings, and navigating the treatment system.
