Panda - The perfect digital companion on the road to recovery
7:00 AM - 8:30 AM CDT
ISSUP South Africa would like to invite you to their Webinar on Panda - The perfect digital companion on the road to recovery.
This webinar will discuss how technology can enable access to mental health care and support, specifically through the Panda app. During the months of the pandemic, many support forums moved to online or hybrid meeting platforms. Panda is an app that specialises in mental health support. Keeping in mind the nature of addictions, dual diagnoses, the importance of support and holistic approaches to sobriety or harm reduction, this Panda is perfectly placed to augment current care models.
How technology can enable ongoing care and easy access to individual, group and community care and support.

Trauma-Informed Care for Opioid Treatment
3:00-4:30pm ET (2CT/1MT/12PT)
The evolution of trauma-informed care in addiction treatment settings has limited consistency. There is also a lack of specificity in how to apply trauma-informed care principles to specific substance use disorders, such as opioid use disorder (OUD). Compared to medication-free programs, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) significantly reduces the risk of overdose death, reduces illicit opioid use, reduces risk behaviors for the transmission of blood-borne infection, and improves retention in care. Despite these facts, only 30 to 50% being treated for OUD receive MAT. Trauma-informed care for opioid treatment includes MAT as a critical component for evidence-based treatment. This presentation will include updated research and best practices on trauma-informed care for opioid treatment.
