The opioid and substance misuse epidemic and its negative health outcomes have touched almost every American. Community-level partnerships and tailored strategies are critical for supporting our communities and implementing a successful response to this epidemic.
The Addiction Alliance of Georgia, a partnership between Emory Healthcare and Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, is hosting a free Comprehensive Opioid Response (COR) Symposium on Thursday, November 2nd, 2023, at the Emory Conference Center Hotel that will build upon the considerable strengths and existing clinical knowledge in our community to create competent and comprehensive trauma- informed integrated care for opioid use disorders throughout the state of Georgia.
This event is designed to:
- Examine current research on the prevention, treatment, and recovery efforts to address opioid use disorders.
- Identify actionable strategies for addressing opioid use disorders and increase whole person health in your practice and community.
- Connect with providers, clinicians, and leaders to create recovery-focused solutions.
Integrated care for opioid use disorders is a process that involves collaboration among stakeholders, including patients and their families, medical providers, mental health clinicians, peer professionals, case managers, community supporters and community-based mutual aid support. Symposium participants will have the opportunity to attend practice-specific informational sessions while increasing knowledge of integrated care for opioid use disorders.
Together, we will bring hope, healing and the power of recovery to the people in our communities.
