Alverno College


Join us for the Hirsh Larkey Mental Health Conference on opioid addiction at Alverno College in Milwaukee, WI. The three hour morning session, “The Milwaukee Opioid Crisis: Taking A Deeper Look At Impact And Interventions” is open to the public. The session includes presentations by Milwaukee Community Opioid Prevention Effort (COPE) on current trends and data related to fatal and non-fatal opioid related overdose in Milwaukee County, the “pathway” to overdose, and the need for interventions at primary, secondary, and tertiary levels of prevention and Milwaukee County Behavioral Health Division (BHD) will provide an overview of current programs being implemented in the county to the address the crisis. A panel discussion features a diverse range of perspectives from treatment professionals, individuals and family members who have been personally affected by opioid addiction and deaths due to overdose. The three hour afternoon session, “Biological and Contextual Etiology of Opioid Addiction: Impact and Intervention”, is limited to licensed professionals. Facilitated by Edward “Ned” Rubin, Psy.D., Psychologist and Addiction Specialist, the primary goal of the afternoon workshop is for licensed clinicians without substance abuse counselor certification to come away with improved knowledge of the overall clinical etiology of addiction, with emphasis on opioid addiction, and best practices to intervention, within the scope of their licensure. Participants will learn treatment approaches and alternatives, and gain an understanding of the role of trauma in the development of addictive disorders. Registration limited to 25 individuals.
