Early Bird Extended – 6th Annual National Opioid Crisis Management Congress
Date: July 18-19, 2022
Place: Westin Boston Seaport, Boston, MA
Opioid use disorder is a serious public health problem that affects almost every community. Drug overdose deaths are the leading cause of injury death in the United States. Each year, drug use disorders cause millions of serious illnesses or injuries among Americans. Provisional data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Center for Health Statistics indicate that there were an estimated 100,306 drug overdose deaths in the U.S. during 12-month period ending in April 2021, an increase of 28.5 percent from the 78,056 deaths during the same period the year before.
As the world continues to battle COVID-19, there are still significant unmet needs for those fighting opioid use disorder, which is currently the number one cause of death in Americans under 50. For those battling addiction, social distancing and quarantining have resulted in disruptions in recovery services and treatment and limited access to mental health services that patients so desperately need. Opioid use disorder affects almost every community.
This conference will bring together some of the leading national experts responding to this ever-increasing public health crisis. Gain expert insight on the current landscape of opioid therapies from top thought leaders in opioid management who will share their latest research and real-world knowledge. In addition, experts at the state and federal levels providing leadership on the opioid public health crisis will explore the challenges of using opioids to manage pain safely and effectively, new use disorder deterrents, medication-assisted treatment, federal and state regulations, and practical solutions aimed at improving patient outcomes and reducing risk, and mitigating the effects of COVID-19 on the opioid epidemic.
