Alleviating Stigma, Treatment Strategies, Community Resources & Stories from the Front Lines

Join NNLM NER for a series of 4 one-hour webinars on topics related to substance use disorders. You are invited to attend all 4 webinars, or only the ones that you are interested in. Each webinar has a specific focus within the substance use disorder field. The format of each webinar will be a presentation from a medical or a speaker who is a community professional currently working to help people with substance-use disorders.

Through each webinar, it is our goal to provide a professional perspective that combines research and/or evidence-based information along with personal experience to further understanding about topics that are timely relating the opioid health crisis. The presenters will share their personal experiences and what they have learned by being involved on the front lines of addiction and treatment.

See below for the individual webinar titles and dates. For more information and to register, visit the Substance Use Disorders Webinar Series page.
