5th Annual Opioid & Substance Use Disorder Virtual Summit: Engaging in a time of Crisis

Hosted by GDAHC and DWIHN

The Opioid & Substance Use Disorder Virtual Summit is a place to learn about the ongoing fight against this epidemic in southeastern Michigan.

The Detroit area and surrounding communities are striving to cultivate solutions to address opioid misuse and substance use disorder plaguing friends, families, youth, and co-workers. Join the conversation and collaborate to learn new innovative strategies and programs tackling substance use treatment and prevention. The current pandemic has provided new challenges and an increase in isolation, substance use and relapse, and mental health concerns. Solutions need to be creative, thoughtful, and innovative, and many are rising to the need. Awareness and collaboration is key as we learn how we can move forward as a community together. Join the conversation and be a part of the solution on November 12 and 13.
