Community as treatment: the therapeutic community model in the era of the opioid crisis

The 9 of November 2018, at the Columbia University (New York), the Italian model of therapeutic community (TC) and in particular San Patrignano were presented as possible solutions to be implemented, reinforcing and complementing the Medical Assisted Treatment (MAT)  in case of Opioid Use Disorders (OUD). Too often MAT is not applicable and effective in all OUD patients, as a significant group continues opioid use with its grave risks despite these first-line treatments.

In light of the great interested raised by this first conference, the format will be replicated in San Francisco, on May 24, 2019, click here for further information.
