Deep Dive: Innovations in Opioid Treatment and Recovery
Friday, October 13, 2017
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Massachusetts General Hospital
It’s been said that substance use disorder is the only disease where people go to prison when they relapse. Massachusetts clinicians, researchers and community activists are helping to change the narrative of treatment and recovery by viewing addiction as a chronic condition like diabetes or asthma with periods of relapse and recovery over time. Based on the latest neuroscience, this new perspective has the potential to radically change community response to the opioid epidemic, reduce stigma, and bring hope to individuals, families and communities affected by this nationwide challenge.
Massachusetts General Hospital hosts this highly interactive, how-to “course” with some of Boston’s leading innovators in addiction treatment and recovery. The format is designed to help you implement promising innovations in their own organizations and communities. A reception and networking opportunity will conclude the program.
