This 90-minute webinar, produced by the National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network (CTN) Clinical Coordinating Center for CTN members and the public, explores the issue of relapse among individuals with substance use disorders (SUD). Outcome studies, types and effects of lapse and relapse, and factors contributing to relapse are reviewed. A major emphasis of the webinar is on discussing specific clinical strategies to reduce relapse risk, with a focus on current empirical and clinical literature, including findings from quality improvement studies and clinical trials conducted in a drug treatment clinic.
The target audience is CTN members and other researchers and clinicians interested in learning more about relapse prevention.
