The U.S. drug epidemic affects all age groups, including adolescents. Health care professionals who care for youth in correctional settings must identify and treat substance use disorders and work to prevent the devastating, and often lethal, consequences of untreated addiction. This webinar will discuss national trends in adolescent addiction, evidence-based practices for screening and assessment of youth substance use, and treatment options for youth with opioid use disorders. Attendees will gain a basic understanding of the clinical presentations of intoxication, withdrawal, and overdose as well as an overview of opioid use disorder treatment strategies that are feasible to implement in the correctional health care setting.
$65 ($55 for CCHPs), includes access to the power point presentation, the webinar recording and CE credit – 1.50 hours for ACCME, ANCC, APA, and CCHP.
