Thursday, Dec 6, 2018: Emory University Summit on Opioid Addiction
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services describe the increase in opioid dependence as an epidemic. According to the CDC, opioid overdoses kill 115 people every day in the United States.
This summit will explain how the opioid problem constitutes an epidemic and how it developed. Participants will learn about available resources, current statewide responses, community impact, and roles of first responders and other stakeholders. Topics will include opioid diversion, prescription monitoring laws, treatment of overdoses and the addiction disorder, itself. Participants will also receive information which will enable and empower them to actively participate in community strategic plans.
Attendees will earn six training credit hours with Georgia POST and/or the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police (executive credits); ASIS attendence will also be documented.
Groups/individuals outside of the Emory Police Department may register here.
