Webinar: Pharmacotherapy for Depression and Anxiety in Patients with Opioid Use Disorder

February 7, 2020

Please join the National Clinician Consultation Center in partnership with the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Bureau of Primary Health Care for this interactive Technical Assistance Office Hour for Health Center clinicians.  Mood and anxiety symptoms place a heavy burden on patients entering into treatment for opioid use disorder. Medications such as buprenorphine and methadone can improve comorbid psychiatric pathology but residual and resistant symptoms often persist. First line treatment options are all too often inadequate leaving clinicians frustrated and patients at high risk for relapse.  This webinar will help clinicians working in health centers make these vital medication treatment decisions.

Participants will learn to:

  • Describe the relationship between OUD and comorbid mood and anxiety disorders
  • Identify the available evidence for treatment of depression and anxiety in patients with OUD
  • Design a medication regimen for patients with comorbid OUD and depression or anxiety disorders

Date: Wednesday, February 19, 2020
