Conquering the Crisis: Fighting Substance Misuse in Alabama
Alabama lacks a comprehensive, coordinated effort among law enforcement, medical services personnel, regulatory groups, health care professionals, and public health agencies to address the problem of prescription drug and illicit drug addiction.
The goal of this program is to develop, deliver, and evaluate a multidisciplinary education program that will advance attendees’ knowledge of and abilities to combat prescription drug misuse and illicit drug use in Alabama, through improved understanding of the problem, enhanced use of existing tools and resources for community involvement, greater appreciation of others’ roles in combating the problem, and focused multidisciplinary communication about the problem, including prevention and treatment.
