The Opioid Epidemic and The Role of Peer Recovery Specialists
Per the CDC, more people died from heroin related causes than from gun homicides in 2015. Here in Circuit 4, deaths by heroin have increased from 3 in 2011 to 101 in 2015…over 3000%.
We need prevention. We need enforcement. And we need treatment. 
We need these strategies to be creative, dynamic and effective.
With the help of a partnership between LSF Health Systems and Jacksonville University, Jacksonville's Peer Recovery Specialist community will now have an integral role in combatting the opioid epidemic. 
Please join us as we examine the scope of Peer Recovery Specialists and the unique role they provide in this critical time of need


RSVP: Lunch is available for those who RSVP by close of business, Friday, February 24, 2017
