Accidental drug overdose is the leading cause of death for people under age 50 in the U.S., claiming over 72,000 lives in 2017 (CDC WONDER). People who experience abuse from their intimate partners are at increased risk for substance use concerns, and often have a harder time getting help because of the ways that their partner sabotages their attempts at recovery, a form of abuse known as substance use coercion. Information and resources presented in this webinar will support advocates to empower survivors with potentially life-saving information on how to prevent and reverse overdose, including information on the opioid overdose antidote naloxone (Narcan®), risk factors for overdose, advocacy strategies to reduce the risk of overdose, evidence-based approaches, as well as cutting-edge innovations in the fight against fatal overdose. This webinar is relevant for DV advocates, program managers/directors, DV/SA coalition members, administrators, policy makers, substance use counselors, mental health practitioners, community health workers, and outreach specialists.

Presented by:

Gabriela Zapata-Alma, LCSW, CADC
Director of Policy & Practice for Domestic Violence & Substance Use
