Event description

Description

Ron Luce will be presenting at the Housing University Conference in September. He will be talking about his recent work as described below.

Medically-Assisted Treatment (MAT) has been a controversial topic in the recovery housing profession. There are legitimate concerns; however, it is a reality that, by law, recovery housing owners, operators, and volunteers, must come to terms with the issues MAT presents. There are ways to make MAT work as an integral part of the recovery process. Ron Luce has explored the underlying issues of discomfort with MAT on the part of recovery housing providers and has uncovered many reasons for MAT's potential to help some people on their paths to recovery; he has looked at the scientific evidence supporting MAT and has looked at "best practices" and at relative laws related to resident rights and MAT.

During the month of August and into the first week in September, Ron Luce conducted five all-day, 8-hour training sessions/workshops for recovery housing staff from around the state. Trainings were done in Athens, Columbus, Cincinnati, Toledo area and in North Canton. Trainings were sponsored by:

His goal was to teach about the myths and realities of medically-assisted treatment (MAT) and how MAT can be converted into medically-assisted recovery (MAR) within recovery houses. Included in the training, he worked with participants to examine policies and procedures that might alleviate any fears they may have about MAT/MAR while protecting their recovery house(s) from potential legal challenges. Participants gained a great deal of knowledge about substance-use disorders’ effects on the human brain, how medicines can help, and how incorporating “best practices” can be adopted and adapted to their particular circumstances.

Dr. Luce will share what was taught, highlights of key information presented, and how it was received by the participants and his insights about what he learned in this process.
