The webinar, “Fentanyl, Sizzurp, Vaping and Other Current Drug Trends,” will give participants the opportunity to earn one CEU and learn about current drug trends and treatment options.

The webinar presenter is Rachel Obafemi, LCPC, MISA, CADC, a Program Director at Gateway Treatment Centers. Rachel implements program improvements and standards, evaluates clinical programming and ensures excellent delivery service through best practices and evidence-based curriculums.

“It is imperative as healthcare providers that we have a knowledge base of current trends in substance use to better assist individuals who struggle with substance use challenges,” Obafemi said. “As medical marijuana and opiate overdose become more common in the general population, it is helpful to have an understanding of the complexity of the issues.”

It's like one mindThe webinar will be offered on two occasions: Thursday, September 15 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. and Tuesday, September 20 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Participants can receive one CEU IAODAPCA, NAADAC, Illinois: LCPC, LPC, LCSW, LSW, Nursing, Psychologist.

Registration in advance is required at Recovergatway.org/Training and space is limited.

“A lack of knowledge in the area of current substance use can hinder our ability to identify the needs of our patients. If such an integral part of an individual’s life is foreign to those providing care, then we are unable to promote health and wellness to our patients as a whole,” Obafemi said.
