Please join the Maryland Addiction Consultation Service (MACS) and the Maryland Behavioral Health Integration in Pediatric Primary Care (BHIPP) for a webinar focused on Benzodiazepine and Prescription Stimulant Use in Youth. The session will feature a presentation by MACS consultant Marc Fishman, MD, addiction psychiatrist, Medical Director of Maryland Treatment Centers, and a member of the Psychiatry faculty of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
To combat the opioid use disorder (OUD) epidemic, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has expanded access to medication for opioid disorder. As of January 2021, there are fewer requirements for physicians to receive their waiver to prescribe buprenorphine to treat OUD. Following the session, MACS staff will provide technical support to providers interested in applying for their waiver.
