Purpose: Substance Use Disorders (SUD), including Opioid Use Disorder (OUD), have a disproportionate impact on Indian Country, and can be treated at the primary care level. The 3 hour training provides an opportunity to engage in didactic sessions, present patient cases, receive treatment recommendations, obtain your MAT waiver and join a learning community to effectively integrate evidence-based opioid use disorder treatment with holistic, culturally appropriate care.

The training is being offered to effectively integrate Opioid Use Disorder and Substance Use Disorder treatment at the primary care level – with a follow up ECHO telehealth collaborative to continue learning, knowledge sharing and support as you start treating.
