2019 Medication-Assisted Treatment and Recovery Symposium
Please save the date for the National HCH Council’s 2019 Medication-Assisted Treatment and Recovery Symposium! From September 16-17 in Portland, OR, this CME-accredited conference will explore the crucial role that Medication-Assisted Treatment and Recovery (MATR) can play in assisting people without homes who are coping with substance use disorder.
America is facing an opioid epidemic, and this crisis is particularly devastating to people experiencing homelessness. For homeless health care providers, MATR offers a vital strategy to combine medications with counseling and behavioral therapies for holistic, patient-centered treatment of opioid use disorder.
Join national experts from Central City Concern and other institutions at our MATR Symposium to learn how to:
- Create a new MATR program and overcome barriers to implementation,
- Strengthen your organization’s existing MATR offerings,
- Understand the neurobiology of addiction,
- Tailor your approach to special populations,
- And more!
