PDS2062: The Opioid Crisis: Where do we go from Here?

May 7, 2020, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

$90

This course will retrace the history of opiate use from opium to prescription drugs and track the long history of heroin use. We will delve into Medical Industrial Complex and look at how Big Pharma, doctors, insurance companies, marketers, the FDA, governmental policies, and consumers each hold some responsibility for the current epidemic. Professor Greenagel will reference the NY Times, LA Times, Washington Post, NBC News, the CDC, a number of professional journals, and scores of local papers to chronicle the history of the crisis. Positive actions that have been taken by local, county, city, and state governments will be examined. We will have a discussion about the Federal response. Data will be reviewed and we will discuss indicators that can be seen as measurable outcomes. This course is steeped in public policy, and the information provided here will be helpful to clinicians and clinical directors for use in individual and group sessions, as well as program design (improvement) and evaluation. Fair warning: it will be extremely difficult to leave this course and not be angry. This workshop does not qualify for NBCC clock hours.
Instructor: Frank Greenagel, MPAP, LCSW, LCADC, CASC, CJC, CCS
