The Wayne State University School of Social Work Center for Behavioral Health and Justice will be hosting our first Opioid Treatment Ecosystem Community of Practice Virtual Summit on May 5, 2020 from 9:00 am - 11:00am

Hear from communities across the state who are implementing processes to provide medications for opioid use disorder within their county jails and leading community-based initiatives to expand the broader treatment ecosystem. An in-person event is being planned for this fall.

The agenda for May 5th will include:

  • An overview of the overdose epidemic.
  • Presentation of OTE initiatives being launched in Kent, Monroe, Jackson, Muskegon, Washtenaw, and Wayne County.
  • Discussion on how to continue to broaden the treatment ecosystem.

Two free social work continuing education (CE) credits will be available to those who attend the Summit on May 5. Instructions for earning CEs will be included in the confirmation email you receive after completing registration for this event.
