Common Psychiatric Conditions in Patients with Substance Use Disorders
Presenter: Allen Masry, MD Psychiatrist Recovery Centers of America at Lighthouse, Mays Landing, NJ
Webinar Description: Many patients presenting for treatment for opioid and substance use disorders today have both psychiatric and medical co-morbidities. Many patients are also on varying psychiatric medications. Some patients stop taking their medications on their own. This presents challenges to the medical provider in treating these patients. Providers need to gain knowledge in the diagnosis and management of common psychiatric conditions in patients with substance use disorders especially during the medical detoxification phase. This webinar will provide information on the most common psychiatric co-morbidities seen in this patient population.
At the conclusion of this activity, learners should be able to:
- Describe the most common psychiatric conditions in patients with opioid and substance use disorders.
- Describe medications that are utilized to treat these conditions.
