HHS Live Stream-National Recovery Month Event
Recovery, Prevention, & Hope: National Experts on Opioids & Other Addictions Equip Faith & Community Leaders
Live Stream: 1- 2 p.m. EDT
Host your own local conversation 2- 3 p.m. EDT
Live from Washington D.C., the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will convene national leaders and experts to talk about the opioid epidemic and other addictions to raise awareness, encourage compassion, reinforce the role of community and families in long-term recovery and prevention, and make a call to action.
You can host a post-broadcast conversation in your community with local experts and discuss approaches that will foster healing for individuals and families and align regional efforts to renew wholeness in your community. We will end with a call to action that will encourage local communities to get involved to address this national emergency.
To help with those discussions you can bring in local expertise to share best practices and use the Partnership Center’s new resource, Hope & Healing: A practical toolkit for faith and community leaders in the face of the opioid epidemic, as a discussion guide. For a copy email Partnerships@hhs.gov
