CODAC to present at international conference on opioid dependence

CRANSTON – Representatives from CODAC Behavioral Healthcare are in Florida this week to make presentations at the 2019 American Association for the Treatment of Opioid Dependence, Inc. Conference.

CODAC plans to speak about the expansion of its addiction treatment for prison inmates, a program that uses medication-assisted treatment, as well as its use of telehealth to provide the same sort of treatment across Rhode Island.

This year’s conference is focused on educating providers and other stakeholders about medication-assisted treatment, and to promote the acceptance and use of the method.

“We are thrilled to be presenting once more at this important annual meeting that brings together an unprecedented number of peers and other key decision-makers interested in exploring viable solutions to our nation’s opioid epidemic,” said Linda Hurley, CODAC’s CEO and president. “It is an honor to share our models, best practices and outcomes alongside some of the most cutting-edge topics and presenters in our field, nationally and internationally.”
