Event description
Attendees will explore Oklahoma's current opioid crisis as experienced by interdisciplinary professionals.

About this Event

Experts in the fields of Prevention, Medicine, Justice & Policy, Law Enforcement, First Responders, Treatment & Recovery, Substance Abuse Program Providers, and Media & Advocacy will be invited to share a “Day in the Life” of their fight with the opioid epidemic and will be given the chance to answer three key questions: What do you see? What do you need? What is your perspective? Additionally, we’ll ask speakers to address CAPSAT’s core strategies of Safe Usage, Safe Storage, and Safe Disposal.

We know that many of those in this field are working in silos, without the broader knowledge of what others are doing. The goal of the forum will be to encourage dialogue across fields to better align and integrate the efforts of those working on the front lines of the opioid epidemic in Oklahoma. Associated opioid data will also be presented and discussed.
