About:
Join us for a two-day meeting to discuss building capacity in Alabama to address the opioid epidemic using evidence-based practice. Everyone is welcome; those already working in prevention, treatment, and recovery, legislators and policymakers, tribal leaders, faith-leaders and the faith-based community, family members, healthcare providers, health departments, educators, and community-based organizations. Our goal is to share evidence-based resources around effective interventions in prevention, treatment, and recovery to impact the opioid epidemic across all populations and to collaborate to address the needs specific to Alabama.

This two-day course covers the following topics:

(1) The Opioid Epidemic in Alabama and how Alabama is taking action to impact the epidemic.
(2) Evidence-Based Approaches to Prevention, Treatment, and Recovery.
(3) Effective Approaches for Youth and Adolescents.
(4) Family Centered Care.
(5) Stigma Reduction Approaches.


A key part of this meeting will be to hear from community members about the gaps and needs in the region and how we can partner together to support these needs to more effectively impact the epidemic in Alabama.
