Medication Assisted Treatment Training for Opioid Use Disorders

High Country Conference Center, Flagstaff, Arizona

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) of Opioid Use Disorders (OUD) involves a combination of medications that targets the brain, and psychosocial interventions (e.g., counseling, skills development) aimed at improving treatment outcomes. Research shows that medications and therapy together may be more successful than either treatment method alone.

The training is being offered to MDs, DOs, NPs, PAs and others statewide: Physicians require 8 hours of training to apply for a waiver from the Drug Enforcement Agency to prescribe buprenorphine

Space is limited. $25.00 registration fee includes lunch.
