Recovery Supports for Young People with Opioid Use Disorders
Adolescents and young adults may display vastly different behaviors of substance use disorders. Their brains are still in development and therefore the exhibition of substance use patterns of behavior may not be as easily recognizable when compared to their older adult counterparts. This webinar intends to highlight that medication for opioid use treatment is a key component of their recovery. However, this presentation will equip providers with additional support plan models to implement within their practices, including a reduction in reliance on office-setting care and a greater emphasis on family-based, school-based programs and mutual peer support help organizations.

Physicians, nurse practitioners or other advanced practice nurses, PAs, psychologists, social workers, and healthcare teams.
