About the event

Intensive Outpatient Programs for addiction and mental health are an important fixture in a Recovery Orientated System of Care. Concurrent programs are the gold standard but is also often not available. Trauma and PTSD are often co-morbid with addiction, especially in our first responders, yet little research and little access to trauma therapy is available. Chronic pain is often ignored yet has significant effect on prognosis. We will discuss treatment options for recovery from addiction, operational stress injuries and PTSD, and chronic pain, enhancing a ROSC.

Learning Objectives:

1. Learners will be able to apply appropriate treatment algorithms and evidence-based psychometrics for the diagnosis of PTSD and other mental health disorders.

2. Learners will gain knowledge in Intensive Outpatient Programs and apply the data comparing inpatient vs outpatient treatment using the ASAM Criteria. 3. Learners will gain knowledge on addiction medicine and mental health’s role in the treatment of addiction in a ROSC.
