How to sign up for Legislative Day onWednesday, March 21st!
Presented by respected coalition leader, and CADCA Trainer, Dorothy Chaney.
Drug overdose deaths are at epidemic levels in the United States, with opioid misuse and abuse—including the use of prescription pain relievers and heroin—driving these increases. This issue often takes coalitions into areas beyond prevention, to look at harm reduction and overdose prevention and more. This session will take a look at the “pillars” approach to addressing the opioid epidemic, providing historical context of how the pillars approach evolved. The session will highlight the Waukesha County Heroin and Other Illicit Drug Task Force, which has been utilizing the pillars approach to unite the county in coordinating efforts to tackle the many aspects of the opiate epidemic.
