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 most recent event in the series, “Technology and Innovations in Addressing Substance Use Disorders,” was held on Monday, March 20, 2017, at 3:00 p.m. in 2020 Rayburn House Office Building, Washington, D.C.
This briefing examined the use of technology in expanding prevention, treatment and law enforcement strategies to support individuals with substance use disorders. Panelists discussed the latest innovative technologies currently being implemented in states and localities that assess, monitor, and provide support services to individuals with opioid use disorders remotely.
