This drop-in session is open to individuals working in addiction medicine nationwide. Every month, we will review an evidence-based article and discuss its implications for SUD practice. This includes new research studies and landmark studies relevant to substance use disorder practice.
Our monthly Addiction Journal Club is intended to be a distinct offering from other BMC Grayken Center for Addiction TTA events. This meeting is designed to be less didactic and more of an interactive review of emerging data and trends related to the care of persons who use substances. This monthly drop-in meeting provides an opportunity to network with addiction colleagues and share experiences about clinical practices.
This month, we will be going over: “Percentage of Heavy Drinking Days Following Psilocybin-Assisted Psychotherapy vs Placebo in the Treatment of Adult Patients With Alcohol Use Disorder: A Randomized Clinical Trial" by Bogenschutz MP, Ross S, Bhatt S, et al.
