About this event

Alcohol consumption, drug overdose, and youth vaping rates have been surging since before the pandemic began. Primary care practices need efficient and evidence-based tools to address the increased risk of substance-related health problems in their patients.

Please join Dr. Alicia Kowalchuk, who is board-certified in Family Medicine and Addiction Medicine, and Dr. Sandra Gonzalez, a LCSW and Director of Behavioral Health for the Baylor Family Medicine Faculty Group Practice, for the virtual workshop, Substance Use Disorder Prevention and Treatment in Your Practice. By attending, you can receive 1 hour of FREE Prescribed CME from AAFP that also counts as 1 hour of ethics CME for the Texas Medical Board.

Using the latest substance use research findings applicable to primary care, this program will equip providers with the skills necessary to implement evidence-based strategies for the prevention and treatment of alcohol, nicotine, and opioid use disorders in primary care patients.

Registration is limited to primary care providers (physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioner's) in the Greater Houston Area and Rio Grande Valley, and their surrounding counties.

The Substance Use Disorder Prevention and Treatment in Your Practice workshop is part of a 6-month program that includes:

• Live workshop (1 hour FREE CME)

• OPTIONAL Academic Detailing

• Up to $60 in gift cards for participation
