Charlotte, NC – Thursday, July 19, 2018 at 11am – 1pm
Whether working in a mental health private practice or in a primary addiction treatment setting, clinical professionals of all types are encountering more and more patients using not only opioids, but stimulants as well. Opioids may dominate headlines, but professionals are seeing an increase in cocaine, meth, and other stimulant use. Some are even calling this a “twin epidemic.”
As mental health and addiction professionals work with their patients to understand the trauma and shame histories that often lead to addiction, a better understanding of this trend is essential. The National Conference on Addiction Disorders has organized a panel of experts to discuss this issue in your community. Join us for an informative discussion, come prepared with questions, and network with your peers over lunch.
Upon attending this presentation, participants will be able to:
- Understand the impact of concurrent opioid and stimulant use
- Discuss strategies for treating patients using both substances
- Explore the impact of trauma and shame histories on particular substance use
- Share considerations for making referrals to treatment
One hour of continuing education credit will be available.
