VayaHealth Free Training Sessions: “Commonly Misused Medications: Understanding Medication Effect on the Aging Brain” and “Substance Use, Misuse, and the Opioid Crisis”
Join the staff of VayaHealth at Patrick Beaver Memorial Library on Thursday, August 18, for two training sessions. “Commonly Misused Medications: Understanding Medication Effects on the Aging Brain” will begin at 10 a.m. and “Substance Use, Misuse, and the Opioid Crisis” will begin at 11 a.m. Both over-the-counter and prescription medications can help someone ease pain or control symptoms due to illness or injury. However, many of these medications are commonly misused or abused. This training will outline common substance use issues and tips for caring for individuals who struggle with medication abuse. Continuing education hours can be provided.
