Innovative Collaboration for Change

GDAHC, the Detroit Wayne Mental Health Authority, and partners continue the fight against the opioid crisis and invite you to participate in the 4th Annual Opioid Abuse and Heroin Overdoes Solutions Summit: Innovative Collaboration for Change. Participants can expect to learn a wide variety of information related to this national issue and how it is affecting the state and region. Experts will provide an examination of current efforts, updated research and statistics, and emerging threats. There will also be an exploration of peer recovery programs and their relationship with and within the health care setting and the courts system. Additional presentations include a review of new licensing rules; the impact of the epidemic on our youth, educational system, and families; opportunities for providers and pharmacists to develop their understanding of substance user disorder and how to implement quality improvement metrics and coordinate with behavioral health professionals; state-level pilot programs. Attendees will receive 5.5 MCBAP-approved specific education hours awarded by DWMHA.
