2017 Opioid Epidemic Forum

Pathways for Curbing the Opioid Addiction Crisis

October 19-20, 2017    Scottsdale, Arizona


About the Conference


The abuse and addiction to both prescription and non-prescription opioids is a serious problem that affects health, social and economic welfare of all individuals, communities and companies.  The consequences of this abuse have been devastating and are on the rise.  In order to address the complex national health crisis, we must understand the origins of the epidemic, confront the growing impact of opioid abuse and find solutions.
The opioid epidemic is a problem that cannot be solved by focusing on individual parts of the healthcare system.  It must be addressed through doctors, pharmacies, distributors, manufacturers and regulators.  This program brings together health care professionals, pharmacists, educators, private businesses and government agency representatives to discuss the on-going crisis as well as present solutions to curb this epidemic.
