Improving Recovery Outcomes: Addressing Co-Occurring Tobacco and Opioid Use
April 8, 2019, 2:00 – 3:00 pm ET
Smoking rates are two to four times higher among adolescents and adults with substance use disorders compared to the general population. By addressing opioid and tobacco use simultaneously, behavioral health providers are more likely to reduce substance use among their clients.
Join the National Behavioral Health Network for a webinar exploring effective treatment strategies for co-occurring opioid and nicotine use.
Webinar participants will learn to:
- Implement low-burden screenings to identify addiction among existing patients.
- Understand the prevalence of nicotine dependence in substance use treatment settings.
- Address barriers and develop plans to treat the use of tobacco and opioids.
