Opioid Crisis

Thursday, October 19, 2017

 

The Capital Chapter ISCEBS invites you to join us for this informative and engaging program with speaker, Jason Youngblood.


The United States consumes more than 80% of the world’s supply of opiates, which now contribute to the deaths of more people than auto accidents. The opiate epidemic, as well as other substance use disorders and mental illness impact nearly 25% of the US population, and presents a challenge to individuals, families, schools, communities, and employers. This discussion will explore the prevalence of mental health and substance abuse concerns, the connection between physical and mental health, and challenges related to finding quality addiction treatment. This discussion will include challenges to employer groups, and discussion of current best practices and learnings.
