As policymakers start to move away from dealing with the COVID-19 emergency, it is imperative they turn their attention back to SUD prevention, treatment, and recovery.

Between skyrocketing overdose numbers and the mental health impact of the pandemic, SUD and addiction remain one of the largest public health threats in the United States. This CE-based webinar examinex how Congress is (or isn't...) addressing this challenge as behavioral health services are in greater demand than at any time in recent memory.
