2nd Annual Opioid Abuse and Heroin Overdose Summit: Moving Forwad to Affect Change
GDAHC is excited to be hosting, in partnership with the Detroit Wayne Mental Health Authority (DWMHA), the 2nd Annual Opioid Abuse and Heroin Overdose Solutions Summit on Thursday, May 11th at Burton Manor in Livonia. This event will follow up the 2016 Prescription Drug Abuse and Heroin Overdose Summit and is a Greater Detroit Area Opioid Taskforce initiative.
The 2016 summit welcomed 400 individuals from the healthcare industry as well as counselors, law enforcement, educators, elected officials, government staff and members of the community at large. This year we will expand our reach as this epidemic knows no bounds. The State of Michigan Prescription Drug and Opioid Task Force has developed statewide recommendations which we will explore and we will increase our knowledge of new policies, programs, and institutions that have been developed to change how we address this crisis.
