Addiction Policy and the Consolidated Appropriations Act
Date: January 31 from 3:00 – 4:00 pm EST
This 1-hour live webinar will provide a comprehensive overview of provisions included in the the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023 (the “CAA 2023”) that will impact addiction care around the country.
On December 29, 2022, President Joseph R. Biden signed the CAA 2023 into law. Key provisions in the CAA 2023 will help improve Americans’ access to substance use disorder (SUD) treatment and related support services at a time when overdose deaths are near record highs.
The goal of this webinar is to provide a better understanding of key addiction-related provisions in the CAA 2023, so that physicians and other clinicians will be better in a better position to navigate the rapidly evolving addiction policy landscape in the United States. This means more patients with SUD will have access to addiction medications and patient-centered care.
The webinar will also include a Q&A session to provide participants with an opportunity to ask specific questions regarding the CAA 2023.
While ASAM is waiting for additional federal agency guidance regarding implementation of this landmark legislation, this webinar will review what you need to know about key legislative changes.
