Overview

Explore Substance Use Disorder Topics with Online CME

Addiction Medicine for Non-Specialists is a case-based CME course designed to guide non-specialists in recognition, evaluation, treatment, and follow-up of patients with substance use disorders. Led by Antoine Douaihy, MD, experienced practitioners cover substances used — alcohol, opioids, stimulants, benzodiazepines, tobacco/nicotine, cannabis — and outline how the non-specialist can help their patient stop using drugs, maintain a drug-free lifestyle, and function in family and in society. Treatment strategies discussed include pharmacological, cognitive-behavioral, and a combination of the two.
