CPNP has prioritized substance use disorders (SUDs) in its strategic plan and is planning our first ever Summit focused on providing effective treatment for individuals living with co-occurring substance use and psychiatric disorders. The virtual event features 8 sessions over 2 days and offers 7.5 hours of ACPE and BCPP recertification credit.
It is well-known that one of the most significant public health problems in the United States is substance misuse and (SUDs). It is also well-known that SUDs are highly co-morbid with psychiatric disorders, with over 9 million adults experiencing a mental illness and at least one co-occurring SUD in any one year. The presence of both conditions can negatively impact each individual condition. And 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.
The inaugural SUD Summit is being presented by CPNP’s Substance Use Disorders Education Committee with Sarah Melton, PharmD, BCPP, BCACP, FASCP and Ericka Crouse, PharmD, BCPP, BCGP, FASHP, FASCP serving as co-chairs. A fantastic line-up of speakers has been secured by the planning committee:
