Webinar: Telehealth and Digital Therapeutics for Treatment of Alcohol Use Disorders during the COVID-19 Pandemic and Beyond
The COVID-19 pandemic has had an enormous impact on public health and well-being. Alcohol misuse, a significant public health concern, not only has the potential to further complicate the pandemic, but the pandemic may be driving increased alcohol misuse.
This webinar will highlight how telehealth and eHealth have been implemented in the treatment of alcohol use disorder—both in the past and during the COVID-19 pandemic—and discuss the challenges that have emerged for patients, providers, and payers as these telehealth/eHealth interventions continue to reshape traditional behavioral health services.
The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), one of the 27 Institutes and Centers of the National Institutes of Health, supports research examining the relationship between alcohol misuse and the pandemic, including how treatment strategies have been modified while meeting the needs of individuals who struggle with alcohol misuse.
This webinar is sponsored by the Friends of NIAAA in collaboration with the American Psychological Association.
