Removing the stigma surrounding substance use disorders
The annual Coming Together Conference enhances public and professional knowledge of Substance Use Disorders (SUD) and Recovery. The event discusses the most current tools and methods of treating SUD/co-occurring mental health disorders, and aims to reduce the stigmas associated with addiction and recovery. Professionals from medicine, law, criminal justice, social work, counseling, and education are joined by national experts and spokespersons in a full day of presentations and workshops. The conference facilitates conversation and partnerships with a variety of community organizations, while sharing community resources, programs, and outreach services available for SUD and Recovery in our region.
