National Recovery Month Webinar: Assisting Communities to Incorporate Recovery Initiatives at all Intercept Points of the Criminal Justice System
On Wednesday, September 9, 2020, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. ET, The Office of Justice Programs (OJP), U.S. Department of Justice, in collaboration with the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), Executive Office of the President of the United States, will host a free webinar on recovery principles and the importance of medication-assisted treatment.
In recognition of National Recovery Month, OJP is pleased to host this webinar featuring OJP Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Katharine Sullivan and Office of National Drug Control Policy Director Jim Carroll.
Representing OJP and ONDCP—two agencies that have helped make Recovery Month a year long, committed endeavor—these national leaders will discuss their efforts to continue promoting the adoption of medication-assisted treatment to treat opioid use disorders in community and corrections settings. The webinar will also focus on OJP initiatives that expand and enhance the quality of evidence-based addiction treatment, including access to lifesaving medication with continuing care for individuals in the community.
