State of the Art in Addiction Medicine (2020)
CSAM State of the Art brings together national experts to share frontiers of research, treatments, and policies in the field of Addiction Medicine. This year we do so under the overarching theme of Frontiers of Access to Care. In this year of the coronavirus pandemic and the growing Black Lives Matter movement, a brighter light has been shone on the disparities of health and access to healthcare. This inequity extends to individuals with substance use disorders, and especially those of color, who are more likely to be incarcerated and less likely to receive treatment. Our conference will cover expansion of treatment into correctional health, hospital consultation services, emergency rooms, and even across the Border. It will cover how, despite the pandemic, telehealth can reach those who are isolated. It will address the worrisome trends in fentanyl, methamphetamine, tobacco and benzodiazepines use; legalization of cannabis, treatment updates for youth, cannabis and alcohol in pregnant women; and novel treatments such as non-benzodiazepines for alcohol withdrawal and psychedelics for substance use disorders. Difficult times will continue, for our patients, our Addiction Medicine community, our country, and the world. Please look forward to being inspired by this year’s conference for how we can each rise to the challenge of providing both state of the art and equitable care to all in need.
The activity consists of 22 lectures presented live virtually on September 22 - September 25, 2020.
