IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON SUBSTANCE USE DISORDER AND TREATMENT SERVICES
Substance use behavior/consumption and demand for substance use disorder (SUD) treatment services during COVID-19 will be the topic of this CAADPE sponsored Webinar.
CAADPE is pleased to partner with its member agency, Tarzana Treatment Center and RTI International, a non-profit research institute for a timely webinar discussion on on substance use behavior/consumption and demand for substance use disorder (SUD) treatment services during COVID-19.
A recent survey by the Research Triangle Institute on alcohol consumption during COVID-19 found that drinking and excessive alcohol consumption has increased across several groups in the U.S. A related study by RAND showed that overall alcohol consumption among adults over the age of 30 is up 14% over the same time last year, with women increasing heavy drinking by 41%. Among adults ages 30-59, the increase was 19%.
The presenters for this webinar are:
Alexander J. Cowell, PhD, director for RTI’s Behavioral Health Financing, Economics and Evaluation program, will provide an overview of recent survey results from RTI Institute’s research “How Has Drinking Behavior Changed During the COVID-19 Pandemic?” that found policies to limit the spread of COVID-19 may have led to an increase in alcohol consumption among various groups.
José C. Salazar, Dr.PH, director of Program Development at Tarzana Treatment Centers, Inc. will discuss how COVID-19 has impacted demand for and access to substance use disorder (SUD) treatment services at Tarzana Treatment Centers and review treatment admission data pre/post COVID-19 and how TTC’s patient access to SUD treatment has been impacted.
