Recovery and Health Forum
September 18-19, 2014
Alcohol / Drug Council of NC
Salter Path, NC
For over 48 years, each fall ADCNC hosted the Outerbanks Conference as an opportunity to discuss and analyze many of the most complicated issues facing the addiction field in North Carolina. With respect to this rich history, ADCNC is seeking to begin a new tradition – an educational forum where we advance the knowledge that recovery-focused addiction policy and financing must reflect a whole health and wellness perspective.
- Feature presentation of a film to educate about substance use disorder among older adults. How do we educate the public and providers about this issue?
- Report on the Project Uniting Peers – North Carolina (UP-NC).What are the health care issues that people in recovery feel still need to be addressed in a more comprehensive manner?
- Discussion of “lessons learned” through the initial year of implementation of the Affordable Care Act. What do these policy changes hold in store for the delivery of addiction treatment? How do addiction services fit within a totally accountable care organization framework?
- Expert lecture on using the media to address addiction as a health disparity issue. What tools can we use to present recovery?
We urge you to join us for this event If you want to (1) learn more about these cutting-edge issues, (2) consider the answers to these questions and/or (3) become a active part of the solutions for NC!
