The Clinician’s Role and Treatment Practices

About the Summit

Prescription drug and opioid abuse is a public health crisis affecting the Greater Pittsburgh area, the region, and the entire country. Stakeholders of all types are finding ways to work together to heal communities, promote recovery, and address stigma. Join the conversation and be part of the solution at the third annual Summit for Clinical Excellence on the Opioid Crisis in Pittsburgh, June 25-26. The Summit offers intermediate to advanced clinical training for mental and behavioral health professionals as well as insights on opioid addiction for stakeholders of all types.
 
New in 2018, the Summit will offer breakout sessions in addition to conference-wide plenary sessions, as well as an optional evening workshop for clinical professionals to earn ethics continuing education credits.
