Opioids: How Do They Work and How Do We Help?

Opioid use has increased dramatically in the United States and across the globe. It is an issue for entire communities, not just for those professionals working in addiction medicine. This webinar will look at how opioids affect the human nervous system as well as the human body. Specific pharmacologic interventions, especially methadone and buprenorphine, will be discussed in opioid addiction. Finally, the use of Narcan for opioid overdose will be discussed. [This webinar will complete your prescription opioid social work license requirement.]
