Upcoming Webinar – The Clinical Edge Series: Co-Treatment of Tobacco and Cannabis Use Disorders

Presented by the Behavioral Health & Wellness Program – University of Colorado

The United States is experiencing two colliding public health trajectories. New nicotine delivery devices are attracting new users at nearly three times the rate that cigarettes did just a few years ago. At the same time, nearly the entire country has passed laws protecting both medical and recreational marijuana use. These trends have made co-use of cannabis and nicotine very common among adolescents and adults. Long-standing clinical approaches to promoting health behavior change provide a solid foundation for addressing polysubstance use. Providers have an opportunity to concurrently address multiple addictions, create cross-cutting policy, and integrate co-treatment into existing workflows. This presentation will detail how integrated approaches might optimize care delivery and treatment outcomes. We will:
• Review the evidence-base for concurrent treatment of tobacco and marijuana use
• Describe strategies for integrating polysubstance use treatment into screening,
treatment, and referral
• Outline how to create and sustain policies for nicotine- and cannabis-free treatment
