• Opiate Use Disorder and its Treatment from a Body-Mind-Spirit Perspective - Part 1 and Part 2

Speaker: Lori Harger, PMHNP One click orders parts 1 and 2 of this 3-hour presentation. Part 1 of the presentation includes an overview of the use of opiates and benzodiazepines. This includes epidemiology, re-thinking clinical language, assessment of substance use, and current standards of care in medications for addiction (MAT) treatment. Explore conventional MAT treatment, pharmacology of methadone, buprenorphine, naltrexone, and short- and long-acting benzodiazepines. Investigate the history of opiate & benzo use, neurological responses to substances, theories of addiction, and trauma-informed care, then dive deeper into screening and assessment tools including motivational interviewing, co-occurring conditions, mental health, pain, and liver/kidney impairment. Part 2 of the presentation covers holistic treatment strategies for addressing the pain and anxiety that drive the misuse of substances. We address botanical interventions, nutritional therapies, psychotherapeutic interventions, mind-body skills, and collaborative care. We explore the unique role of the practitioner’s healing presence as an agent of change with individuals recovering from addiction.
