Persistent Pain and Substance Use Disorders – How to Manage

Managing the dual diagnoses of opioid use disorder and persistent pain can be a challenge for those providing treatment of pain as well as substance use disorders. Some CARF-accredited providers have developed innovative approaches to address both issues in an integrated setting.

This webinar series offers a unique opportunity to take a global approach and deal with the multiple issues that an individual with opioid use disorder and persistent pain can achieve. Accreditation is not just a tool for quality systems, but a tool to cross over into other sectors to learn what they offer that can assist the persons served. The common language and activities that are shared through the standards can also open channels of communication in other arenas that can only benefit the persons served.

CARF invites accredited behavioral health, medical rehabilitation, and opioid treatment program (OTP) providers to join this webinar series to learn together with innovators in the field.
