Overdose Grief, Loss, and Healing Supports (Closed Event - ORN)

Opioid overdoses have increased by 28% between April 2020-2021. Statistics are indicating over 100,000 overdoses are occurring annually. Appropriately, funding is targeting many organizational and structural opportunities. But how do we respond to the emotional and psychological toll the overdose of a client or resident has on professional caregivers and other peers? What are the best ways to support both staff and clients? 

This interactive session will review some of the main issues that arise when residents in recovery environments experience and donā€™t survive a recurrence.  Content will review the behavioral, physical, and psychological responses to grief, self-care and coping strategies. Discussion will also review overdose postvention activities that can help support those staff and other residents impacted by overdose loss.
