Moderator: Dr. Lily Brown, University of Pennsylvania


In 2017, over 47,000 people died of opioid overdose, continuing the more than 2-decade trend of unabated escalation of opioid-related fatalities. In addition, over 2 million people suffer from opioid use disorder, with many more misusing heroin or prescription opioid analgesics. The scope of this problem requires response from the entire healthcare system, including mental health clinicians. The goal of this webinar is to provide an overview of effective treatment for opioid use disorder as well as practical guidance on preventing and detecting opioid misuse and making appropriate referrals. Topics reviewed will include a description of evidence-based treatments for opioid use disorder, assessment and identification of opioid misuse and opioid use disorder, resources for referral, and the role of behavior therapy in the treatment of opioid use disorder. 

 Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will:

  1. Describe effective treatments for opioid use disorder.
  2. Describe assessment tools for identifying opioid misuse.
  3. Identify methods for safe medication disposal.
  4. Identify referral methods for opioid use disorder.
