Event Details

Suboxone, methadone, and other such medications allow patients to remain clean from substances of abuse. However, patients have found ways to abuse all of these medications. Hear how they are abused, and how to decrease the risk of such abuse. Naloxone, especially nasal naloxone, is another tool to potentially prevent death in these patients, while they become clean. Providers must be aware of what patients already know; this will help in the battle against addiction.
