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?

At the completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Contrast Type II Diabetes with Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) or Substance Use Disorders (SUD).
  • Discuss the changes in routine treatment for OUD patients in OBOT (Office Based Opioid Treatment) program.
