Symetria Recovery to Hold Substance Use Disorder Symposium at Oakton Community College

Back to News

Substance use disorder (SUD) is often underrecognized, underdiagnosed, and undertreated within primary healthcare settings. To improve outcomes, there has been an industry emphasis on integrating behavioral healthcare and Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) within primary healthcare. It is that premise on which The Symetria Method® bases its treatment, delivering a success rate 4x the industry average. On January 25, 2019, Symetria Recovery is hosting a symposium on Comprehensive Treatment and Evidence-Based Outcomes for Opioid Use Disorder at Oakton Community College in Des Plaines, IL. Presenters for the Symposium include Symetria Recovery’s CEO Chris Hassan; Chief Medical Director Dr. Abid K. Nazir, MD; Medical Director Dr. Dora Dixie, MD; and Program Director Natalie Thukkaram, LPC, CADC. During this free, daylong symposium, addiction topics addressed will include:

  • *Medical treatment of opioid and alcohol use disorders
  • *Bio-psycho-social causes
  • *The impact of co-occurring disorders
  • *The role of psychiatric care in treatment and recovery

This free symposium is IAODAPCA CEU approved, providing 5.5 CEUs, making it ideal for Illinois professionals including social workers, professional counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychologists, and nurses looking to satisfy their CEU requirements. Additional sponsors include MainStay Youth & Family Services and Chicago Behavioral Hospital.
