Join January's SUD Summit to improve addiction treatment in Minnesota
January 5, 2023
Drug overdose deaths are at a record high. The upcoming Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Shared Solutions Summit is a collaborative effort where participants will begin work on a three-to-five year strategic action plan to improve Minnesota's SUD system.
The summit will include speakers and interactive breakout sessions focusing on key themes that were identified during listening sessions last fall:
• A Coordinated, Holistic, Integrated Continuum of Care
• Prevention and Education
• Cultural Engagement and Responsiveness
• Funding and Workforce
• Law, Policy and the Criminal Justice System
Registration is now open for the summit, which will take place at the Elmer L. Andersen Human Services Building in St. Paul on Jan. 10-11. A virtual option will be offered for those who cannot attend in person. The event is free.

The SUD Shared Solutions Summit is a collaborative effort between the Minnesota Association of Resources for Recovery and Chemical Health, Project Turnabout, Niyyah Recovery Initiative, the American Indian Chemical Dependence Advisory Council, Alluma, Minneapolis College, the Association of Minnesota Counties, the Minnesota Department of Human Services and the Minnesota Department of Health.
