New Addiction Medicine Toolkit: Improve Treatment of Patients with Substance Use Disorders
CDC developed an Addiction Medicine Toolkit, endorsed by the American Society of Addiction Medicine, to promote collaboration with addiction medicine specialists to support effective patient treatment.
The Toolkit features:
- Addiction Medicine Primer
- Addiction Medicine Checklist
- Clinician Training Modules
- Patient Cases
- Conversation Starters
Visit the Addiction Medicine Toolkit to learn about substance use disorders (SUDs) and the field of addiction medicine, including diagnosis and treatment of SUDs, linkage to care, methods to reduce stigma, and communication strategies that foster trust and help to build a collaborative patient relationship. Clinicians are eligible to earn free continuing education credits after completing all four training modules.
