Posted by on August 7th, 2017 Posted in: Consumer Health, Education, Health Professionals, Outreach, Public Health


The department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships, in collaboration with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC), is offering a webinar series for faith and community leaders on the current opioid addiction crisis.

Understanding the Opioid Crisis: What’s at the Heart of the Matter?
August 9, 2017, 12:00 PM ET – Register

National attention is focused on the opioid crisis, and communities are struggling to respond. In this webinar, national leaders from SAMHSA and the CDC will share data and the science about opioid addiction, and dispel some common misconceptions about treatment and recovery. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and will receive information about additional resources.

There is Hope: Treatment, Recovery, & Prevention
August 16, 2017, 12:00 PM ET – Register

Connecting people to treatment and recovery support has shown to be effective and can save lives. Join HHS for this second webinar to hear CDC and SAMHSA representatives review early intervention and treatment, and the essential role the community plays in recovery support and prevention. Discussion will also include getting ahead of the problem, the impact of adverse childhood experiences on the development of a substance use disorder, and how upstream preventative action can restore hope and a brighter and healthier future to generations to come. The webinar will close with a Q & A and a review of resources.
