Addiction: A Paradigm Shift from Problem to Patient through Policy


Friday, April 10, 2020, 12:30pm to 2:00pm



Addiction is one of numerous public health crises facing the US today. Treatment for severe substance use disorders (i.e., addiction) has evolved over time as science has advanced to better understand addiction as a chronic disease, acceptance of evidence-based practice guidelines, and availability of safe and effective treatments. Patients, however, still face barriers to engaging treatment for a variety of reasons (e.g., cost, stigma, limited resources), some of which will be explored in greater depth in this session. Thus, efforts to craft better policies that improve access to and affordable care for substance use disorder treatments are important.
