Welcome to the Opioid: Data to Action Conference
The conference will be held on April 17-18, 2019, at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis.
The purpose of this event is to move beyond discussions of data and explore what is truly working in our communities. The event will include statewide and regional partners from medicine, education, social work, nursing, public health, human resources, law enforcement, and more. The goal of this event is to share innovative ideas and highlight emerging practices. We will also explore how to maintain momentum for programs with demonstrated successes and how such programs can be replicated.
Over the course of the two days our emcee, Darrell Gordon, will guide attendees through the process of being empowered and inspired by the promising work being done throughout the country. This one-time event will create a network of professionals to call on for support and advice, and it will move community stakeholders forward in addressing addiction and recovery.
Topics will include:
- Addiction in the Workforce
- Community Prevention Efforts
- Drug Courts
- Faith-based Initiatives
- Family Programs
- Local Government Action
- Naloxone Training (Additional $45 fee, Course capacity limited to 40 people)
- Peer Recovery
- School-based Interventions
