Event Description

Join UCLA physician Belis Aladag, MD, MPH , as she discusses opioid (prescription pain killers, heroin, etc.)  dependence and available treatments. Methadone maintenance and buprenorphine (Suboxone, Subutex) therapy will be discussed in detail as the two most successful treatment modalities for this prevalent public health issue.
