Sprout Workshops Presents Americas Opioid Epidemic
Approximately 500 Americans die per week in America due to opioid-related issues. Recovery rates are low and relapse can lead to unintentional overdose, especially as extra potent opioids such as fentanyl and carfentanil enter the drug supply chain. However the combination of long-term treatment with medications like buprenorphine and naltrexone have emerged as potent and effective interventions contributing to the overall recovery process, and the decrease of recidivism and relapse. These interventions, coupled with evidence-based practice treatments such as trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and the availability of intensive levels of care, including long-term residential treatment, have created an emerging generation of recovery options for persons with opioid dependence.
Presented by Steven J. Karp, D.O., FACN
