The Opiate Epidemic: What You Need to Know & How Can You Help?
August 31, 2020
10:00 am to 11:30 am

Opioid addiction has been declared an epidemic and a national emergency. Since COVID, overdose deaths have increased. 8% of high school students and 7% of middle school students report taking prescription drugs not prescribed to them. It is imperative that we do a better job of identifying and treating opiate addiction. This training will give you an introduction to opiate addiction, address treatment approaches, and suggest what you can do to help.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
