Abstract: Dr. Molfenter will provide an overview of the “Opioid Crisis” in the United States and how it is impacting research opportunities in the addiction treatment and Implementation Science fields. Causes and impact of the epidemic will initially be discussed. Then, opioid use disorder treatment evidence-based practices will be described. Followed by the gaps and challenges being experience in getting these practices implemented and research we have conducted to better understand how to get these practices implemented (or scaled-up) into broader practice.
