Prescription Drug and Opioid Abuse
Connecticut is approaching the treatment of youth with opioid use disorders by offering a blend of three evidence-based practices: multi-dimensional family therapy, medication assisted treatment and recovery management check-ups. Delivered to families in the home and community, this approach offers an innovative way to combat the opioid problem. Participants will understand the unique treatment and recovery needs of young persons with opioid use disorders, learn key model components as well as outreach and engagement strategies.
