About 20% of those suffering from opioid dependence are receiving some type of treatment, and only one third of those are using FDA approved medication.  Maryjo will discuss treatment with Methadone and Suboxone within an outpatient substance abuse treatment facility.  The diagnosis of opioid dependence was recently approved by NYS for treatment with medical marijuana.  Gerald will discuss indications for use and discuss his experience as a pharmacist at PharmaCannis.  Dinner is included.  A general meeting will follow the presentation.
