The Challenges of Polysubstance Use: Treatment and Management of Alcohol and Opioid Use Disorder Comorbidity
Alcohol is involved in over 20% of opioid-related overdose deaths, and co-occurring alcohol use disorder (AUD) significantly increases the risk of all-cause mortality among opioid use disorder (OUD) patients. Co-morbid opioid and alcohol use can be a potentially dangerous combination that can damage a person’s brain and body. Additionally, treating co-morbid opioid and alcohol use can lead to greater treatment complications compared to the treatment of either substance on its own. This webinar will discuss the use of medications and other integrated care strategies to improve treatment for co-morbid opioid and alcohol use disorders.

Educational Objectives:

• Understand the prevalence and health risks of co-morbid opioid and alcohol use
• Identify treatment implications related to co-morbid opioid and alcohol use
• Examine the benefits of integrated care to treat co-morbid opioid and alcohol use
• Discuss strategies to support long-term recovery from co-morbid opioid and alcohol use
