ASAM Webinar: Treatment of Alcohol Use Disorder

September 25, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm

According to the 2021 National Survey of Drug Use and Health, 29.5 million people ages 12 and older had Alcohol Use Disorder in the past year. Alcohol Use Disorder is a chronic and complex disease that affects thousands of patients every year. There are evidence-based approaches to treatment, including non-pharmacological interventions and medications. Understanding these options and misconceptions about treatment alternatives can help improve outcomes for patients.

This 3-hour introductory course provides an overview of the diagnosis and management of Alcohol Use Disorder, with a focus on treatment in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. This case-based, interactive course highlights the triage and management of patients with alcohol withdrawal syndromes, and the successful transition to evidence-based pharmacotherapy. Adjunct behavioral therapies will also be discussed.

The target audience for this introductory course is clinical healthcare professionals who prescribe medications in the outpatient or inpatient settings.
