State Solutions to the Opioid Epidemic

States are battling an unprecedented opioid epidemic. There is new agreement among the treatment community--backed by research--that medication-assisted treatment for addiction and harm reduction measures, such as syringe exchange programs and easy access to naloxone, are effective. This eCademy webcast will highlight innovative programs, practices and policies focused on the prevention and treatment of substance abuse and opioid addiction in the states. How these programs may be impacted under some proposals to reform the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid will also be discussed.
