Bring Them All!

Family Recovery Pathways Conference, May 6-8, 2019


May 6-8, 2019
Sioux Falls, South Dakota
Registration for this event is closed


When addiction occurs during motherhood, it affects the whole family and requires a comprehensive, compassionate response by multiple service systems and professionals. New challenges to working with families have emerged as methamphetamine makes a resurgence alongside the opioid epidemic. 

The goal of this conference is to bring together professionals who engage with families impacted by substance use disorders (SUD) to provide an opportunity for multidisciplinary exploration of methamphetamine use among caretakers, family-centered care principles, and their application across fields.
