9 a.m. Drug Epidemic Overview, Legislation, and Advocacy
Robert Valuck, PhD, RPh, FNAP, Colorado Consortium for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention. Dr. Valuck will explain major factors that have contributed to the current US epidemic of opioid misuse, abuse, overdose, and death, including the recent impacts of COVID-19. This presentation will also provide an overview of new Colorado laws, regulations, and guidelines (policies) pertaining to controlled substances and give audience members an insight into the state’s path forward in this work.

10 a.m. Trauma Integrated Addiction Treatment: What Is It?
Michael Barnes, PhD, MAC, LPC. Chief Clinic Officer, Foundry Treatment Center. No matter who you speak to in the addiction treatment world, they will tell you that they do trauma informed or trauma integrated treatment. But what does that mean and what should that look like? This presentation will offer a developmental model and a set of axioms that can be utilized in the development of effective trauma integrated treatment. The Neuro Affective Relational Model (NARM) will be proposed as a central organizing theory for assisting clients to work simultaneously with achievement of addiction milestones and resolution of day-to-day trauma symptoms. NARM is a treatment model designed to address developmental trauma, based on somatic psychotherapy, attachment theory and regulation of the autonomic nervous system. NARM developmental themes of connection to self and others, attunement to needs, trusting self and others, autonomy and boundary setting, and the ability for love/sexuality will be highlighted. This presentation will also outline specific gender, cultural, and ecological issues that will need to be addressed to meet the unique demands of treatment in rural environments.
11 a.m. Medication-Assisted Treatment Best Practices & Mobile Health Services
Dr. Jeremy Dubin, DO, FASAM. Front Range Clinic Medical Director.
Donna Goldstrom, LAC, LPC. Front Range Clinic Clinical Director
Mobile treatment services have proven to be an effective way to provide treatment to Coloradans in the rural and frontier parts of the state. The Colorado Department of Human Services, Office of Behavioral Health with $6.7 million from the State Opioid Response grant, is providing six mobile health units specializing in medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to improve access to MAT in rural and underserved areas of Colorado. In addition to these six units, mobile treatment options are available through pop-up clinics. Front Range Clinic is operating four of the six mobile health units.
