Tackling Opioid Addiction: Implications for Prevention and Treatment – School of Education & Human Development

Tackling Opioid Addiction: Implications for Prevention and Treatment

For the most meaningful Monday in February, please attend!

Declared a national public health emergency in 2018, opioid misuse claims 130 lives a day. Addiction has laid waste to the hopes and dreams of more than 10 million Americans ages 12 and older. It crosses all geographic and socioeconomic lines, and it threatens the foundations of our society. As community members and leaders, we have the responsibility to help educate, inform, and inspire others to countervail the routes to addiction, find proper treatment, and address opioid use more effectively. Most significantly, we must help promote the development of public policy that supports individual and community well-being.

In service of this mission, the Department of Educational & Psychological Studies (EPS) in the School of Education & Human Development at the University of Miami is hosting this important public forum. Insights and guidance will be provided in preventing, intervening, and treating opioid misuse and addiction.
