The Opioid Crisis in 2018:
What You Need to Know
Saturday, November 17, 2018 from 7:30 AM to 12:30 PM EST
As the opioid crisis continues to grow, it is vital that all clinicians become comfortable assessing opioid use disorders. We are taking a unique approach with this conference by using the biopsychosocial-spiritual lens to examine and illuminate the diverse aspects of the crisis. Opioid use disorders are not only an individual issue but a societal one, as well. That makes it all the more imperative for clinicians to take a broader view of public health and policy interventions. At the level of the individual, we see the impact of neurobiological disruption alongside psychological and spiritual manifes-tations. This program will explore these varied approaches as we discuss innovative ways to address the core problem of opioid misuse.
