To combat the growing addiction epidemic that has resulted from opioid prescriptions for pain management, building partnerships and collaborations is critical. The Texas Society of Addiction Medicine, Texas Health Institute and Superior HealthPlan have joined forces to host a summit that addresses the state of the science in pain management and actions that can be taken to respond to the crisis.

Superior HealthPlan created an inaugural summit in 2018, “Changing the Paradigm in the Treatment of Chronic Pain and Substance Use Disorder in Texas.” The Texas Health Institute and Texas Society of Addiction Medicine are partnering this year to increase the scope and Summit reach.
