COVID-19 has forced changes in our lives, from how we work and socialize, to how we take care of ourselves and loved ones. Amid the challenges and limitations, a rare silver lining is that the pandemic has led to policy changes that increase access to care for substance use disorders (SUD). Additionally, health-technology innovations have created more options for patients, providers, and families. Depression, isolation, and other risk factors for SUD are exacerbated by the pandemic. At the same time, we must not lose sight of the growing importance of paying attention to the spectrum of mental health conditions, awareness, and prevention measures. Panelists will explore how forward-thinking health interventions can leverage current and future technology to incorporate prevention efforts, along with treatment and recovery, while offering the ideal of a holistic approach that is non-stigmatizing, accessible, and providing the highest quality of care for all.
