This workshop will be conducted in a virtual Zoom meeting format.

3 CEU/CPH units

Opioid use has created a nation in crisis, and many now look to social workers to help curb the opioid epidemic. This workshop includes a discussion of opioid use disorder (OUD) as a brain disease, the landscape of the opioid epidemic, and overdose prevention and harm reduction strategies.

In addition, we will review the medications used to treat opioid use disorder (MOUD), including how they work, and how people can access them. We will also gain insight and perspective through firsthand accounts from PreventEd Certified Peer Specialists working in the community to connect people ready for help with MOUDs.

General Admission: $60**

Class size is limited to 50.
