2022 Update

What Every Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist Needs to Know About Opioids, Marijuana, and Substance Use Disorder Treatment

April 30, 2022

8:30am – 12:30pm (Virtual) 

Massachusetts and the United States are currently in the midst of a public health crisis due to the opioid epidemic. More child and adolescent psychiatrists and other pediatric providers who understand how to work with adolescents and families are needed to support young people with substance use disorders, including opioid use disorders. This training will provide background on the opioid epidemic, review treatment for opioid use disorders including medication, therapy, and family interventions. Guidance for working with parents with opioid use disorders, including women in pregnancy and neonatal management of infants exposed to opioids in utero, will also be reviewed. Finally, an update on cannabis in the context of legalization in Massachusetts will be provided.
