The deadline to submit presentation proposals for the 5th Annual National Rx Drug Abuse & Heroin Summit has now passed. We received more than 200 ideas, and the Summit’s National Advisory Board is now reviewing these proposals to identify up to 10 Educational Tracks and additional Pre-Summit Workshop topics to be offered at this year’s conference.

The National Rx Drug Abuse & Heroin Summit has earned a reputation for timely, informative and engaging presentations targeted to those on the front lines of the Rx drug abuse epidemic. The Summit has become the premier collaborative event for professionals from local, state and federal agencies; businesses; academia; clinicians; workers’ compensation; treatment providers; counselors; educators; state and national leaders; and advocates impacted by Rx drug abuse. We will again focus on ways all stakeholders can “Make an Impact” at the 2016 Summit.
