Learn How Opiate Blockers are Reducing Community Costs
by Lowering Relapse
Rates and Recidivism
JTNN is partnering with the University of Nevada School of Medicine to offer a special training, “Medication Assisted Treatment - Opiate Blockers: The Impact on the Community” on October 22 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Emergency Physician, Michael Stackpool, M.D., Desiree Crevecoeur-MacPhail, Ph.D from UCLA Integrated Substance Abuse Programs, and Sergeant Brad Rose from Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office will discuss how opiate blockers are reducing community costs by lowering rates of relapse and recidivism and the substance use disorder treatment outcomes obtained by those who used the suspended release form of naltrexone (antagonist medication).
Attendees will also learn how to implement an antagonist medication into a county-contracted substance use disorder treatment system and the requirements to coordinate services.
This activity is approved for CME, CLE, CE and POST credits for physicians, nurses, lawyers, LADC's and law enforcement.
