Announcing: Fall Webinar Series on Medication Assisted Treatment

Posted about 3 years ago by Pat Sonnenstuhl

The National Council for Behavioral Health is pleased to present our Fall Webinar Series on Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) and Opioid Dependence, supported by the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry under its prime grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

This webinar series is designed to support CBHOs to build foundational knowledge about MAT, FDA-approved pharmacotherapies for opioid dependence, the safety and efficacy of MAT approaches for opioid dependence, and the pervasive myths related to MAT approaches to opioid dependence.
