Webinar Description: Substance use drives poor health outcomes in the general population. SUD continues to lead to more death and disability than any other preventable condition, with alcohol being the third leading cause of preventable death in the United States. Drug-related overdoses also continue to climb with > 108,000 overdose deaths per year as well as the leading all-cause mortality under the age of 50. Primary care is generally not thought of as a place to access mental health care, but it may be a critical tool in noticing substance use behaviors and proactively loop patients into needed care. This webinar aims to introduce screening tools that can be administered during primary care visits.

Educational Objectives:

  • Apply the screening guidelines and current state of the evidence to your practice.
  • Review and evaluate screening instruments introduced in the webinar.
  • Consider screening implementation in general medical settings based on the needs of your current patients.
