1 Hour Webinar Training with Mary-K O’Sullivan, LMFT, LADC, LPC

PRESENTATIONIn addition to the significant issue with opioids that is present in the United States, synthetics drugs, for a variety of reasons, are also becoming an epidemic in the United States. Many clinicians and clients are unaware of their use because they can be sold under traditional trade names that disguise their origin. In this training, participants will obtain updates of prescription drugs of abuse and learn about the range of the illicit synthetic drugs that are flooding the street.

As a result of this training participants will:

  1. Be able to discuss specific prescription medications now being highly abused in the U.S.
  2. Review the “new synthetic drugs” that are replacing the traditional drugs of abuse
  3. Overview the risks of the multiple synthetic drugs currently flooding the illicit drug market
