AAGP May Webinar - Innovations in Substance Use Disorders Treatment for Older Adults
As the opioid epidemic rages across the United States and awareness of substance use disorders grows within our culture, older adults living with substance use disorders remain an underserved segment of the greater population of those with addictive disorders. Studies have demonstrated that clinicians continue to screen and treat older adults at a lower rate than younger adults and adolescents, in spite of the fact that older adults are at least as likely, if not more likely, to respond to treatment for substance use disorders and be able to sustain meaningful recovery. This session aims to provide a review of the literature on opioid and alcohol use disorders in older adults, including management of acute withdrawal, treatment in recovery, and complications that can arise for patients who have these use disorders. We will review epidemiology, diagnosis, management and treatment of these conditions.
