Benzodiazepine and prescription stimulant use in youth — What’s the impact on SUD and its treatment? Free CME/CEU/CPE Webinar

September 17, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

Join Maryland Behavioral Health Integration in Pediatric Primary Care (BHIPP) and Maryland Addiction Consultation Service (MACS) for a special BHIPP Resilience Break Recovery Month Webinar focused on Benzodiazepine and Prescription Stimulant Use in Youth. This webinar will feature a presentation by MACS Consultant, Marc Fishman, MD, addiction psychiatrist, Medical Director of Maryland Treatment Centers, and a member of the Psychiatry faculty of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

To combat the opioid use disorder (OUD) epidemic, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has expanded access to medication for opioid disorder. As of January 2021, there are fewer requirements for physicians to receive their waiver to prescribe buprenorphine to treat OUD. Following the webinar, MACS staff will provide technical support to providers interested in applying for their waiver.

1.) Identify therapeutic benefits, risks and side effects associated with use of benzodiazepines and prescription stimulants
