Understanding the Opioid Crisis: Where do I begin?

Posted by on October 22nd, 2018 Posted in: Substance Addiction and Misuse, Webinars


Join the National Network of Libraries of Medicine- Middle Atlantic Region on November 28, 2018 at 2:00 PM EST for the class Understanding the Opioid Crisis: Where do I begin?

An estimated 1.9 million people in the U.S. have a prescription opioid use disorder, while another 586,000 have a heroin use disorder. This class will help you to understand what addiction and opioids are and where you can find authoritative information to understand this complex epidemic. The National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health provide resources for both the general public and health professionals to learn about opioid abuse and overdose prevention and treatment options. This class will discuss many of these resources and explore ideas for their use in community outreach education and programs in your library or organization.
