Young Adults and MAT: Evolving Best Practices for our Highest Risk Clients

Friday, October 25, 2019, 9:30 AM

Course Description: The Substance Use Disorder field has been splintered for much of the last 50 years in regards to what is the most effective course of treatment for Addiction… MAT or Abstinence Based Treatment? The result is that both forms of treatment often continue to serve clients in a fragmented, non-integrated fashion. This presentation will explore the history of both Medication Assisted Treatment and Abstinence Based Treatment. The program will explore the outcomes associated with both MAT and Abstinence based Treatment, outcomes specifically in the Young Adult population and the challenges and barriers that both forms of treatment face and experience. The presentation will ultimately seek to present possible integrated solutions for clients suffering from substance use disorders. The presentation will also explore the challenges associated with serving young adults with Substance Use Disorders with ABT and MAT treatment modalities.
