You only have to turn on the news to realize that opioid use is a rapidly changing, all too often tragic issue impacting not only our region but the entire country.

This workshop will increase your knowledge of current trends in opioid use, including illicit fentanyl and heroin.  We will review medication treatment options for opioid use disorder - including buprenorphine and naltrexone – as well as discussing the importance of reducing stigma around opioid use disorder treatment and recovery.  Essential educational elements for clients and caregiver will be shared for harm reduction, such as what to do in case of an overdose.
