2019 Governor Mills Response to the Opioid Summit - July 15th

The 2019 Governor Mills Response to the Opioid Summit being held on July 15, 2019 at the Augusta Civic Center and is now open for registrations. 

The 2019 Governor Mills Response to the Opioid Summit being held on July 15, 2019 at the Augusta Civic Center and is now open for registrations.  Keynoting the Summit will be Sam Quinones journalist and author of the landmark book, Dreamland, and former White House Director of National Drug Control Policy Michael Botticelli.  In addition, a panel will address what Maine and neighboring states are doing to respond to the opioid issues as we create unity within our great state

Numerous breakout sessions, each opening by someone in recovery, will be moderated by experts in their fields addressing issues ranging from recovery support strategies to community coalitions and law enforcement’s impact and ability to bring hope to recovery.  Specifically, one breakout will be voices of recovery, where individuals will share their stories of challenges and transformation.  Another will be a debate around responsible prescribing and if the pendulum has swung too far.

At only $40, this will be a sold out event.  Secure your seat at the summit by clicking the link below:
