Webinar description: This webinar presentation will challenge participants to rethink outpatient withdrawal management. An outpatient setting for the treatment of withdrawal symptoms is safe and effective for most patients with substance use disorders. The chief advantage over treatment in an inpatient setting is higher likelihood of patient participation in meaningful follow up treatment.
- Review traditional withdrawal management protocols in an outpatient setting.
- Assess the importance of simultaneous participation in psychosocial treatment services.
- Contrast the increased transition into ongoing care compared to inpatient withdrawal management.
