A Primer on Non-Medical Prescription Opioid Misuse: Prevalence, Trends, Ethics, and Clinical implications

This workshop  will not be available for playback review

Across the nation, drug overdose deaths have increased greatly in recent years. Non-medical prescription opioids and other illicit drugs pose dangerous consequences for those engaging in substance misuse.  Non-medical prescription opioid use entails the use of opioids either without a prescription and/or in ways that do not coincide with how prescribed opioids are medically prescribed. Given the link of onset of substance misuse and the presence of mental health conditions, health and human service professionals have an integral role in mitigating use and supporting those engaging in substance misuse. This webinar will provide a look at non-medical opioid misuse in the United States by providing an overview of prevalence, trends, and clinical implications for providers. A focus on ethics and ethical implications will be discussed. This is an introductory course and provides factual information based off of the presenter's national research and co-authored publications.


Class 2: 1:45PM-4:45PM EST

A special focus will be devoted to varying understandings of pain, options for assessing pain, and treatment options. Co-occurring, comorbid conditions will be discussed with an emphasis on at-risk populations who may experience chronic pain. Supports, interventions, and strategies will be discussed aimed to improve quality of life and enhance comfort for people living with chronic pain.
