Quetiapine has been used as a treatment for a large variety of substances including to aid in withdrawal and abstinence. However there is now growing concern that this treatment is becoming a drug of dependence in its own right. This talk will look at quetiapine, how it works, its evidence for use in treatment of substance use, adverse effects from its misuse and the evidence behind quetiapine withdrawal and management.

Anita is a Registered Nurse with 13 years’ experience and a Master of Public Health. She has translated her experience in emergency nursing across to drug and alcohol sector. She is passionate about challenging perceptions of substance use and providing an evidence-based biopsychosocial care to all clients and their families.
