How have we gotten to the point where, in many parts of the country, fatal overdoses from narcotics are three times the rate of suicides? NAMI’s Ask the Doctor Webinar will explore this question and many more, as we take an in-depth look at America’s opioid epidemic with Dr. Suzanne Vogel-Scibilia. An expert in the field, Dr. Vogel-Scibilia will walk through the epidemic’s historical background; relevant, pressing policy matters; options for systemic change; as well as treatment options for substance abuse disorders, especially those with opioid use disorder. Her talk will be followed by a Q&A, led by Dr. Ken Duckworth, NAMI’s Medical Director. Click here to register.
