Description: This program will help practitioners explore the concept that Substance Use Disorder (SUD) and Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) are chronic medical conditions. With this in mind, are providers treating their patients with SUD/OUD the same way they would treat patients who have Type 2 Diabetes, High Blood Pressure or Asthma?
