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.
