5th Annual Opioid and Substance Use Disorder Summit

A Holistic Approach to Integration

GDAHC is proud to be hosting this vital event in partnership with the Detroit Wayne Integrated Health Network (DWIHN) for a fifth year. Due to COVID-19, the event is currently postponed.

The Detroit area and surrounding communities are striving to cultivate solutions to address drug addiction plaguing friends, families, youth, and co-workers. Join the conversation and collaborate to learn new innovative strategies and programs tackling addiction treatment and prevention. Last year's summit hosted over 500 individuals, including 50 sponsors and vendors. We look forward to another outstanding display of community resources and collaboration.
