Event description

Description

With a recent push towards medication-assisted treatment models, how does this impact those struggling with addiction or in long-term recovery? What happens to traditional abstinence-based programs? How can they work together to ensure long-term success for clients? Join us for a day of understanding more about addiction, how to implement evidence-based models into helping those in recovery succeed, and to learn more about WHAT medication assisted treatment is, who it is for, and how providers can safely work with individuals to achieve a successful long-term outcome.

If you are interested in understanding more about how addiction impacts the brain, learning about evidence-based treatment models, or learning how to safely implement MAT in a recovery house setting, join us on May 9th!
