Target Audience

The CPNP Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Summit 2021 is a 2-day virtual meeting devoted to advancing the care of individuals living with co-occurring substance use and psychiatric disorders. Although integrating SUD and mental health services is important, effective treatment approaches to concurrently address psychiatric illness and substance use as dual diagnoses are not routinely occurring in practice. This meeting is targeted toward psychiatric pharmacists and other health care professionals involved in the treatment of individuals living with these co-occurring illnesses.
