Understanding MAT for Adolescents (16 & 17) and Young Adults (18-24) with Opioid Use Disorder is intended for behavioral health providers, social workers, case managers, or other clinical support staff working with youth or young adults struggling with substance use disorder and specifically opioid use disorder. Using a case-based approach, this training will equip providers with the information and knowledge that they need to care for adolescents and young adults with opioid or other substance use disorder. There will be a specific focus on using pharmacotherapy to treat opioid use disorder and best practices on integrating medication treatment with behavioral health care for this population.

Participants will:

  • Increase understanding of opioid use disorder through a developmental lens;
  • Recognize the purpose of medication in treating opioid use disorder;
  • Understand the role of the behavioral health professional in supporting adolescents & families
  • Identify available services and how to make a referral
