This month, we will be going over: “Association of Dose Tapering With Overdose or Mental Health Crisis Among Patients Prescribed Long-term Opioids" by Agnoli A, Xing G, Tancredi DJ, Magnan E, Jerant A, Fenton JJ. To read the article, please click here.

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.

Please register in advance via Zoom using the link at the top of this page in order to attend this session.
