About This Event

Join us for this presentation to learn more about the impact of opioid and other drug issues in north central Indiana communities. You will hear current local data about substance use as well as gain a better understanding about some of the misconceptions of what addiction looks like.  

Members of the North Central Indiana Quick Response Team will discuss how integrating paramedicine, Peer-Based Recovery Supports and traditional clinical supports can increase access to care, decrease resistance to initiating recovery and serve as a catalyst to more broad community collaboration. 

The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion including information about local resources, services and initiatives.
