A 6-hour training with Joseph Zannella, MA, LADC
October 20, 2023
PRESENTATION: This training is designed for clinicians at any skill level to explore and understand the changing nature of chemicals of addiction. New substances of abuse are being created, changed, marketed and promoted to us every day. We are inundated with new kinds of drugs, both prescription and illicit and new combinations that are making headlines. Fentanyl is causing a surge in overdoses and fatalities and newer and deadlier formulations of opiates are overwhelming treatment centers and ER’s. We will review the most commonly reported drugs being abused and will explore what new chemicals may be showing up in the coming months and years.
- Learn the newest substances being reported, and how they work in the body.
- Learn what new substances may start making inroads as recreational drugs.
- Share their own experiences in their particular communities in their clinical areas
- Will describe the areas they have the most concerns with.
- Explore how they can educate and support their clients’ recovery based on how these substances affect them.
