The 3rd Annual Substance Use Disorder Symposium at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, presented by the National Capital Region Medical Directorate is a part of our ongoing educational initiative, hosted by the National Capital Region Pain Initiative. This symposium is dedicated to addressing the abuse of both prescription, nonprescription opioids and other substances, which has become a national crisis. This symposium is designed to help clinicians and healthcare teams prevent, identify, and treat substance use disorders as it requires a multifaceted approach including education, research, intervention and clinical care.
