About the webinar: There is a high prevalence of mental health disorders among those with opioid use disorder. However, many practitioners still find it difficult to distinguish between differential diagnoses that may have similar symptomatology, especially in regards to mental health and substance misuse. This webinar will enable participants to summarize the prevalence of common co-morbid mental illness, explain the relationships between concurrent mental health and opioid use disorder (OUD) and recognize risk factors associated with both mental health disorders and OUD.

Educational objectives:  At the conclusion of this activity participants should be able to:

  • Summarize the prevalence of common co-morbid mental health (MH) disorders.
  • Explain genetic and environmental relationship between concurrent MH disorders and Opioid Use Disorder (OUD).
  • Describe the impact that co-occurring MH and OUD can have on treatment of both.
