The Addiction Policy Forum's Translating Science into Practice series provides policymakers and practitioners with actionable resources about programs in a comprehensive response to addiction--including prevention, overdose reversal, treatment, recovery support and criminal justice. Our next event in the series, "Effective Treatment for Substance Use Disorders" will be held on Wednesday, February 1, 2017 at 12 p.m. in 2226 Rayburn House Office Building.
The briefing will examine research and promising practices for the delivery of evidence-based treatment for substance use disorders. Panelists will talk about the latest science, research and innovative programs currently being implemented in states and localities that have shown promising results, including the use and delivery of patient-centered care, individualized treatment plans and medication assisted treatment.
