Driving Community Solutions for the Opioid Crisis

May 16 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

The opioid crisis has become America’s #1 public health emergency. Treatment professionals are in a position to influence everyday citizens and policy makers alike, but finding the right avenues can be a challenge. At the same time, treatment professionals can struggle with staying up-to-date on the latest developments in America’s prescription drug abuse and heroin epidemic.
To address these needs, Addiction Professional magazine has organized a lunch’n’learn in Chicago to discuss how treatment professionals can better work together and become effective change agents for educating the public as well as helping to bring about a comprehensive prevention and broad-based treatment strategy.
Upon attending this course, participants will be able to:
  • Understand recent developments in the opioid crisis and its impact on the local community
  • Prepare discussion points to share with the community
  • Explore ways treatment professionals of all types can better work together to ensure a recovery-oriented system of care
One hour of continuing education credit will be available.
