ACT Psychiatric Care Provider Series: Updating SUD Care in the Age of Fentanyl and Stimulants

A series of monthly calls for ACT psychiatric care providers. Offered in collaboration with the Institute for Best Practices at the University of North Carolina.


Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is a multidisciplinary, team-based model that provides intensive community-based and outreach-oriented services to people who experience the most severe and persistent mental illness. The vast majority also have a co-occurring substance use disorder and many experience comorbid medical illnesses.

The Northwest MHTTC is hosting a series for ACT psychiatric care providers. We welcome all ACT psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, and other prescribers. Sessions will be held once a month on Thursdays at 12:00-1:30 pm Pacific/3:00-4:30 pm Eastern.

Learn more about the series and past sessions here.

This presentation will discuss Substance Use Disorder (SUD) care in the age of fentanyl and stimulants, with a focus on implementation of harm reduction and treatment.
