Engage in three-part webinar on opioid epidemic

Learn about "The Opioid Epidemic: What can we do differently?" in a three-part webinar series. Since 1999, the number of overdose deaths involving opioids (including heroin and prescription drugs such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, and methadone) has quadrupled. This series is designed to assist health and human service providers working in a variety of settings with developing strategies to address the opioid public health crisis in the U.S. (Sources: Central East ATTC, CDC).

This Webinar Series is offered by the Central East Addiction Technology Transfer Center, in collaboration with the Regional Office (Region III) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Mid-Atlantic Training Collaborative for Health and Human Services (MATCHHS).
