Policy/Public Implications of Substance Use Disorders

Symposium Webinar
Friday, October 9, 2020 - 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm EDT

This webinar has already occurred. The recorded webinar is now available.

Addressing the opioid epidemic regionally and at the state level requires clinical as well as public health initiatives. The development of policies and the role of public health officials in addressing access to care, influencing payment models, and impacting the development of new initiatives to combat substance use on a population level are crucial to the success of any mental health or substance use program. This conversation will take a closer look at the role of policies and how to incentivize programs to improve the care of individuals with substance use disorders.

About the Symposium:
