Weitzman ECHO Substance Use Disorders:

Managing patients with substance use disorders in primary care

Program Information

This Weitzman ECHO Series for Ohio connects primary care providers, behavioral health providers, and other care team members to a community of peers and subject-matter experts from across Ohio to address patients’ complex health needs related to substance use disorders. The multidisciplinary faculty team applies a trauma-informed, harm-reduction philosophy of care to improve the care of patients with substance use disorders and their health outcomes.
