The objectives and goals of the summit are to increase awareness, identify best practices, and create a network of support for individuals in recovery from diverse populations. Sessions for the first day of the conference will focus on trauma-informed care, perinatal opioid use disorder, gender-responsive interventions, culturally-responsive interventions, and substance use in older adults.

Sessions for the second day will focus on harm reduction and building recovery capital through community partnership and culminate with an overdose response training.
