Building Pathways to Address Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Webinar Series

Program Description

In many communities, COVID-19 has created new challenges for stakeholders interested in addressing the Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Crisis. The pandemic has increased risk factors like job loss, stress, and isolation, while requiring new and innovative methods to safely provide treatment and support. This session will highlight the different resources offered by government agencies that can be beneficial to those in recovery, families, communities, the nonprofit sector, and employers, as well as provide you some real-world examples of how foundations can work in collaboration with those agencies.  

Rachel Thaxton, Assistant Director of the Office of Drug Control Policy in West Virginia, will share recently released resources by the West Virginia Department of Health & Human Resources for use in recovery. Crystal Ward Allen of the Casey Family Programs will discuss the collaborative Ohio START (Sobriety, Treatment, and Reducing Trauma) program, launched in 2017 with the Ohio Attorney General’s office.
