    Target Audience




    • Overview

      Every 6 minutes in our country, a person dies from prescription drug overdose, while every 30 minutes a child is born dependent (not addicted!) upon opioids. How do we, as healthcare professionals, offer non-stigmatic patient care and help to move society in the right direction? Addiction, classified as substance-use disorder, is likened to an iceberg or a weed because the issues beneath the surface are typically more complicated than what is viewed from the surface. Thus, in this discussion, we will review the core concepts and understandings of substance use disorder (addiction). So, join Dr. Mark Garofoli for a conversation on addiction that will be sure to impact your patient care, maybe your own opinions, and perhaps even your holiday family meal conversations!
