Program Description

Opioid use in our society has become a national health crisis.  How did we get here when we were “just treating the pain”?  You will explore the history of the opioid crisis and its relationship to addiction. You will navigate assessment tools and plans of care, including emergency care, to successfully help a client move into lifelong recovery.  By learning how support systems impact the lifelong recovery plan, you will gain tools to empower family to strengthen the client resolve to beat the addiction. You will engage in simulation, role play and return demonstration exercises throughout the day of learning. You will be viewing a video during lunch.
