We are delighted to announce the upcoming conference, “Liberating Methadone: Building a Roadmap and Community for Change.” The conference will take place in New York City on September 21st and 22nd of 2023. This is an exciting partnership between the National Survivors Union, National Coalition to Liberate Methadone, and NYU Langone Center for Opioid Epidemiology to deliver this conference.
This conference aims to bring together members from various backgrounds to discuss and exchange ideas on how to improve access to and use of methadone to reduce the harms of opioid use. Our goal is to break down traditional barriers between researchers, clinicians, policy makers and people who use drugs and to create a shared space for collective understanding. Conference proceedings will be gathered to generate a report with actionable recommendations for policy and clinical practice. This two day conference can be attended in person or virtually via a webinar. To register, please click on the EventBrite link.
