We are pleased to announce the 7th annual Substance Abuse: A Community Response conference will be April 27-28, 2016. This year our theme is “Building a Healthier Community Together.” Using this theme as our basis, the conference aims to increase awareness of new, proven, and/or promising techniques and programs that are being used to address the spectrum of substance abuse from prevention to intervention, treatment and aftercare.
Join us for keynote presentations by Dr. Chan Hellman, an Oklahoma-based, world renowned researcher on hope, as well as our community’s own Liz Davis, who will provide a deeper look at neurobiology, epidemiology, Adverse Childhood Experiences and resiliency! The conference will also include a screening of Paper Tigers, a documentary about a trauma-informed approach to education.
The two-day conference also will cover topics such as marijuana policy, recovery, peer education, e-cigarettes, innovative prevention approaches, prevention in tribal communities, housing and homelessness and their connection to addiction/recovery, and more.
We hope to see you at Great Wolf on April 27!
