Team-Based Care to Address Psychiatric and Physical Health Co-morbidities in Persons with Opioid Use Disorders: Responding to Chicago's Opioid Crisis
According to provisional data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 81,000 drug overdose deaths occurred in the United States in the 12 months ending in May 2020, the highest number of overdose deaths ever recorded in a 12-month period. Most of these deaths are driven by the misuse of prescription and illicit opioids. Research also suggests that a significant number of people with an opioid use disorder also have a co-occurring psychiatric disorder as well as other physical health conditions, making engagement and care more complex. Please join us as we discuss how one treatment program in Chicago uses a team-based care approach to engage and address the psychiatric and health care needs of people with opioid use disorders.

In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry (AAAP) and American Psychiatric Association (APA). AAAP is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
