The purpose of this event is to bring together--the people of Monroe County and surrounding areas to collaborate on the ever worsening opioid epidemic.   Event Agenda.

This free, one-day summit, hosted by members of Monroe County Government, concerned citizens and experts in the field, seeks to:

1) Educate our community on this problem

2) Provide Innovative ideas and solutions to managing this epidemic and helping those with an addiction problem and their loved ones thrive.

3) Collaborate with local stakeholders to develop a Strategic Plan to begin tackling this problem together.

4) Most importantly, this summit will be focused on the people that this problem affects. We will offer professional expertise and education and we will also offer ample opportunities to hear from local residents who have experienced addiction firsthand.
