Target Audience: This presentation was developed for substance use disorder project directors, managers, and facilitators. This presentation will be especially informative for organizations that were awarded federal or state grants for substance use disorder programming and are running community consortiums. This presentation is also appropriate for providers and/or providers-in-training from diverse healthcare professions including physicians, nurses, physician assistants and pharmacists.

Webinar Description: This webinar will focus on Methadone Treatment as in a historical background beginning in the mid-1960’s through 2021 and discuss how a Methadone Treatment program in Cincinnati has dealt with the many changes in treatment. It will review the changing of treatment from using methadone as a medication replacement therapy to part of a bigger treatment that includes specialized medication, individual counseling, and group therapy. With more potent opioids compared to the early years, it has become a challenge for Opioid Treatment Programs to maintain replacement strong enough to help individuals from becoming a statistic of overdose and possibly death. 


Educational Objectives:

  • Review and examine changes in opioid treatment during the past 57 years.
  • Discuss the relevance and roles of modern day treatment facilities.
  • Discuss the need for new best practices
