Looking for a collaborative environment to help brainstorm ideas and solutions to our Nation's prescription drug abuse issues? The National Rx Drug Abuse Summit is tailored to provide the most up-to-date, data-driven discussions for professionals in the clinical, pharmacy, prevention, and treatment fields.

Sessions will include topics such as prescribing habits and trends, access to treatment and recovery programs, education for youth, dealing with addicted infants, regulations and policies, community-based approaches, responsibilities of clinicians and pharmacists, and recognizing and responding to risks.

Among the keynote speakers will be representatives from the Food and Drug Administration, National Institute on Drug Abuse, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Drug Enforcement Administration, Office of National Drug Control Policy, and SAMHSA. This Summit is the only national collaboration of professionals from local, state, and Federal agencies, business, and academia, as well as providers and clinicians.
