As we look forward to 2018, we are faced with grim news from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that 63,600 people died from drug overdose in 2016. That is 174 people a day. These ominous figures from the CDC report underscore the importance of what we as a community are doing to combat addiction and strengthen our resolve to do everything we can to get those figures down to zero.
With this in mind, we will be hosting an event on February 10th in Franklin Wisconsin. Executives from Addiction Policy Forum, will lead our discussion and answer questions as together we consider the steps we will be taking to help end addiction in Wisconsin.
This event is appropriate for anyone in the state that has an interest in working towards solutions to the drug epidemic. Individuals, organizations, groups, policymakers, legislators and affected families are encouraged to attend and bring others to this free, informative event.
Hear about what Addiction Policy Forum is doing at the federal and state level to affect changes, including their new online resource & action portal.
Training on how to share the “What is Addiction” video at events or for groups in your community will be included. Narcan trainign also available.
We would love to have your input and have you join us as we figure out how we can all work together towards our common goals.
