New Podcast Takes a Look at the MAT-Resistant Patient
Medication-assisted treatment is widely accepted treatment for patients with opioid use disorders. Still, patients have many reasons, spoken and unspoken, to be reluctant to start this potentially life-saving treatment. On this episode, Ashley Braun-Gabelman, PhD, discusses the importance of addressing this resistance and why it's important to explore this barrier to treatment head on. Dr. Braun Gabelman is a clinical psychologist in Addiction Recovery Services at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. She specializes in the treatment of substance use and co-occurring disorders including major depression, anxiety disorders, and PTSD.
