"Impairment With A Focus on Opioid Use and Abuse" 

The opioid epidemic is significantly affecting communities throughout New England and nationally. Drug overdoses killed over 70,000 Americans in 2017 (more than peak HIV, gun, or automobile accident deaths). No community is untouched, also, New England states, are among the most severely impacted.

Beyond the human toll, the economic impact, tallied in measures including lost productivity and increased health costs, is staggering. Estimates run as high as $740 billion nationally. Organizations and individuals are struggling to respond, but the good news is that there is a range of practical steps anyone can take. Hopefully this closeout session will providing participants with solid, practical advice they can use in their own lives and organizations.

Panel Discussion With:

  • Chief Robert Moulton, Scarborough Police Department

  • Jenny Burke, JD, MS, Sr. Director, Advocacy, National Safety Council

  • Michael Botticelli, Executive Director, Grayken Center for Addiction at Boston Medical Center
