Topic:  Changing the Conversation: The Role of Prevention, Treatment and Recovery Communities in a Time of National Crisis

 According to the CDC, more than 72,000 Americans died from drug overdoses in 2017, including illicit drugs and prescription opioids--nearly double in a decade. Yet almost exclusively, the entire national conversation has been about increasing access to Medication Assisted Treatment and Naloxone. These are necessary, albeit, insufficient to truly address the crisis. What is the role of prevention and coalitions in this crisis? Why is it so difficult to engage the broader stakeholder of our communities with the urgency this crisis calls for? How can prevention and coalition leaders more effectively engage their communities in solving this challenge.

 The purpose of this presentation is to assist coalition leaders, social workers, counselors, prevention and addiction professionals, and other clinical personnel in identifying and providing effective prevention solutions for addiction. During this presentation attendees will be introduced to many proven strategies to prevent opioid misuse. Prevention strategies are critical to working upstream to address the issue of prescription drug misuse. States, communities, and families can intervene to reduce inappropriate access to prescription drugs, thus significantly reducing the impact of the opioid crisis.
