Integrated Care for Substance Use Disorders Amid the Opioid Crisis – 2021 Update

While the nation’s attention is focused on the coronavirus pandemic, it’s critical to remember that we’re also in the middle of an unprecedented opioid epidemic, with more than 130 people a day dying from an opioid-related drug overdose. As a result, primary care physicians and other providers are being called to play an increasingly larger part in the treatment of substance use disorders. They are needed to provide opioid abuse prevention services and effective pain management as well as identify treatments that create a productive, integrated behavioral health care plan.

  • National trends in evidence-based management of opioid use disorder
  • Emerging approaches that integrate behavioral health care and substance use disorder into medical settings
