This is a bundle of our Addictions, Substance Use and Co-Occurring Disorders Sessions - please note that some sessions may appear in multiple bundles. Classes included: Addictions Track | Substance Use and Co-Occurring Disorders Track A Multi-Faceted Approach to Cravings Management Presented by Doug Paul, LMHC, QS, LPC The DSM 5 added “cravings” to the criteria for substance use disorders in October, 2015
We are pointing out that segments from the American Society of Addiction Medicine’s (ASAM) National Practice Guidelines For Use Of Medications in the Treatment of Addiction Involving Opioid Use emphasize: “Psychosocial treatment should be implemented in conjunction with the use of buprenorphine in the treatment of opioid use disorder.” “Psychosocial treatment is recommended in conjunction with any pharmacological treatment of opioid use disorder.”
