In 2015 76 people every hour were treated and released from an
ER for opioid related care and 92 were admitted to an inpatient hospital for opioid related care. In 2016 there were 4.6 overdose deaths every hour. Let's Do Our Part to end opioid addiction! There will be speakers discussing Addiction; Medication Assisted Treatment - what it is and how it can help; the hub and spoke model; Pathways Recovery Center; Prevention Strategies; Community Treatment Options; the Opioid Task Force. Hear from students about their suggested strategies, and from a provider of treatment. There will be a NARCAN training (that includes lunch). Prescriptions will be available for those with insurance.
