The opioid crisis has devastated communities and reduced life expectancies of Americans. The origins of the current opioid epidemic are complex and effective solutions are daunting. This conference will provide an overview of significant voids in the healthcare system’s response to the opioid crisis, suggest how systems and individuals can improve prevention, give effective ways to expand access to treatment and further reduce stigma in the community about addiction and mental illness, and much more! In addition to hearing presentations from experts in the field, participants will have the opportunity to engage in different interactive breakout workshops, all pertaining to prevention, treatment, recovery, harm reduction, and adolescents.
