As administrators of Arizona’s Medication Assisted Treatment – Prescription Drug Opioid Addiction (MAT-PDOA) service grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA), the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) will host two MAT Symposiums in Mohave and Graham County this summer.
In collaboration with the Arizona State University Center for Applied Behavioral Health Policy, these two events will outline how Arizona is using clinically effective prevention and treatment strategies to best serve those impacted by the opioid epidemic. Discussions will include current state initiatives being implemented to combat this rapidly emerging crisis.
The content of the symposiums is designed for MAT providers, substance use disorder treatment providers, physical health providers, harm reduction organizations, justice system partners and interested community members. There is no charge to attend the symposiums and the public is welcome. Attendees can earn 6 hours of CEUs.
