Opioid Therapies

The American Academy of Neurology is participating as one of 13 organizations in the Providers' Clinical Support System for Opioid Therapies (PCSS-O), a three-year grant funded by Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment. It is a collaborative project led by American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry along with 12 other national health and professional organizations. As a partner organization, the AAN is providing free webinars on the safe and effective prescribing of opioid medications in the treatment of pain and opioid use disorders, with a specific focus on concerns in neurologic practice.
