Medications and Recovery: Opioid Treatment Ecosystem Community of Practice Lunch and Learn
Recovery form opioid use disorder (OUD) is often a long process, with many potential roadblocks along the way. Support, understanding, and tools for growth--such as medications--are a large part of recovery for individuals with OUD, including those who come in contact with the criminal/legal system. However, opioid use disorder recovery is often limited by availability of evidence-based, research-supported medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD), which aid in the success of individuals seeking recovery.
Hear from MOUD expert Dr. Janis Romanik on what recovery often looks like for individuals with OUD, how MOUD assists recovery, and why success is often dependent on factors such as the length of MOUD usage. We hope this exceptional speaker will assist our partners in better understanding populations they serve, and we encourage questions after the presentation.
This webinar is presented as part of the Opioid Treatment Ecosystem Community of Practice Lunch & Learn series, made possible by the generous support of the Michigan Health Endowment Fund.
