Responding to the Opioid Overdose Epidemic

August 26, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

In recent years, the opioid and overdose epidemics have increasingly threatened individuals, families, and communities across the country. Daunting statistics and rising death rates have necessitated diverse approaches by providers in all sectors, including professionals in public health, behavioral health, and primary care. Interventions have included an increase in medication-assisted treatment (MAT), medication-first policies, and harm reduction strategies. Join the Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions for a webinar on August 26, from 2-3 p.m. ET. Our experts will present perspectives on the opioid overdose epidemic, related rises in stimulant overdoses and share strategies that can address overdose prevention, saving lives, and initiating recovery.
