Dr. Frank Joins Expert Panel to Educate Clinicians on the Opioid Epidemic in Philadelphia

In Philadelphia alone, the number of people who have died from drug overdoses rose to over 1,200 in 2017, up from 907 the previous year. While there has been notable progress to increase treatment access and efforts to restrict opioid prescribing, the opioid epidemic is growing stronger. On February 8th, the Psychoanalytic Center of Philadelphia (PCOP) will have a panel of experts for its event, “The Opioid Epidemic: Psychodynamic Perspectives and Interventions,” to educate clinicians about the opioid epidemic and its impact. Jeremy Frank, PhD will be on the three-person panel to describe their experience of the opioid epidemic, discuss psychodynamic theories of addiction and treatment options, and help clinicians refine their listening for themes of addiction in their patients or patients’ loved ones.
