The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), in collaboration with HHS’ Office of Faith Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, invites you to join an important webinar.   A call to action for faith leaders and health ministers for taking action to end the opioid epidemic and increase access to health care webinar will take place on Friday, January 15, 2016 from 1-2 p.m. EST.   

Faith groups play an essential role in supporting health and wellness in communities across the country; and have a demonstrated history of providing spiritual, social, and emotional assistance for men and women struggling with substance use disorders.  Thus, faith leaders will share their stories on how they are engaging their communities to address the opioid epidemic, building coalitions, reducing stigma and building trauma informed congregations.  Additionally, speakers will highlight the unprecedented opportunities that exist with the Affordable Care Act’s defined substance abuse treatment benefits and new parity requirements.

You will be able to share questions when you register, and presenters will also respond to live questions during the webinar.  Please share this invitation with other faith leader who are interested in supporting treatment access and quality for individuals with substance use disorders; and we look forward to your participation.    

Sincerely,   

Michael P. Botticelli Director, National Drug Control Policy
