Attend this conference virtually on substance use disorders to hear the latest research and find guidance that enhances your care for patients.

Substance use disorders are complex and have a huge impact on patients, families and communities They challenge even experienced health care professionals to stay current with evolving guidelines.  And they are seen and treated across all professions, disciplines and practice settings. This includes primary care, psychiatry, social work, psychology, family practice, nursing and more.

That's why our agenda focuses on a broad update across the spectrum of substance use disorders. Sessions cover everything from neuroscience and developmental perspectives all the way through recovery-oriented systems of care. Our faculty share their experience as both clinical caregivers and research experts. They make time to answer questions and help you find solutions for complex conditions.
