Restoring Community Symposium
May 21, 2019
Indiana Tech, Andorfer Commons
We are convening community leaders to change how we talk about the underlying issues that lead to opioid and substance use disorders and how we support those fighting addiction.
The intent of the Restoring Community Symposium is to foster connection and collaboration among patients, families, clinicians, mental health providers, judicial systems, government, policy makers, and social service agencies, to address opioid abuse.
Experts will discuss topics such as overdose fatality data, science of substance use disorders, community collaboration efforts, justice system intermediations, peer recovery, and current responses to the epidemic.
