Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Psychiatry Volume 42, Issue 22: Addiction Medication.
The goal of this program is to improve the recognition, diagnosis, and treatment of substance use disorders (SUD). After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Screen for substance use, dependence, and abuse during routine visits with patients.
2. Differentiate substance-induced disorders from psychiatric issues which may predate substance use or manifest in isolation.
3. Implement simple interventions to educate patients about at-risk behavior and reduce substance use.
4. Determine whether patients with SUD are likely to benefit from inpatient hospitalization.
5. Use opioid agonists and antagonists to prevent relapse among patients being treated for opiate dependence.
The original programs were presented by Aaron F. Whiteman, DO, Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, Indiana University School of Medicine, and Addictions Psychiatrist, Midtown Community Mental Health Center, Indianapolis, and Charles P. O’Brien, MD, PhD, Kenneth E. Appel Professor of Psychiatry, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.
