The United States is gripped by an opioid and heroin addiction crisis. The social work profession will play a valuable and key role in our nation’s efforts to address this issue. This Region 8 workshop will provide an overview of opioid addiction, how clients move from seeking pain relief to addiction, and the impact on clients' lives, their families and their ability to function in society. We will also explore how to identify & treat opioid addiction and the challenges in doing so.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Advance knowledge of opioids and addiction.
  2. Improve knowledge about the opioid epidemic.

The workshop is free for NASW members, $25 for non-members. RSVP required to Abby Segal, LMSW at
