Event Description
Ohio has been devastated by the effects of opioid use disorders. Many counselors and other professionals are scrambling for a treatment intervention to assist clients with recovering from this addiction. This workshop will review the commonly abused opiates, including prescription medications, heroin and the deadly fentanyl, and carfentanil. Current research supports the use of Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) along with counseling and social support to help people who have an opiate use disorder to subsequently cease and/or decrease their opiate use. This workshop will provide an overview of the pros and risk factors in the use of the MAT. Counselors will gain an understanding of how to support their clients and help them to make informed decisions regarding MAT for their recovering process. We will also explore a full continuum treatment model that has shown evidence to reduce recidivism and reduce accidental overdose because of opiates. Workshop objectives: 1. Participants will gain knowledge of the drugs of abuse that are categorized as opiates including their physiological and psychological effects. 2. Participants will be able to immediately begin screening their opiate use disordered clients for appropriateness for a referral for MAT. 3. Participants will be able to verbalize to their substance use disorder clients at least two benefits of MAT, and two risk factors of use of MAT, in an effort to assist clients with making an informed decision about their treatment. 4. Participants of this workshop will understand how to develop a comprehensive care plan for clients receiving MAT. This will include the importance of using motivational interviewing, family support, case management services, and counseling.
