The Technology Dilemma: Can Technology Fix the Overdose Crisis?

December 1st @ 12pm – 1pm CST

Join us for this panel to discuss the roles of technology in combating the overdose crisis.

TxSUS-Sessions-2000x2000

This TxSUS Series will tackle the roles of technology in helping organizations to combat the overdose crisis. Technology is certain to be a driver for how we engage those in need of treatment. Digital therapeutics offer an opportunity to reach those that have been cut off from traditional methods of treatment, and can enhance research, evaluations, data, and outcomes. However, tech has its own limitations and drawbacks, so where is it best suited to help? Panelists will discuss how mobile technology can support substance use treatment, harm reduction outreach, and more.
