Event description

Description

Join us for a very important conversation about our nation’s greatest public health challenge.

This educational and interactive program will feature experts in the addiction treatment field, ethical prescribers, and those who have experienced an addiction to prescription drugs who have also been impacted by this national health epidemic.

Special guest, Steve Moriconi, DMD will address opioid "best practice" prescribing to help us become informed health care patients. Dr. Moriconi is the Pennsylvania Dental Association’s official lecturer on Safe Prescribing Practices.

Together we will:

  • become informed health care consumers
  • develop language we can use with prescribers
  • understand who is vulnerable to opioid dependence
  • break through the stigma that keeps people from seeking treatment
  • address pain management
  • hear real stories about opioid addiction and recovery

All are welcome. It is vital that we come together as a community and learn all we can about opioids, both prescribed (such as Vicodin) and illicit (such as heroin), and their potential for addiction.


Thank you to Montgomery County's Office of Drug & Alcohol for supporting this program!
