ICAHN 2023 Opioid Conference

This conference examines the need to support law enforcement interventions for Substance Use Disorder (SUD) and the importance of Medication Assisted Recovery (MAR) treatment for incarcerated individuals. The day will also provide information that can be used to establish a recovery community that reduces substance use stigma and promotes positive change.


  • Becoming a recovery specialist focusing on recovery, addressing stigma, and empowering people to live their best life.
  • Understanding deflection and pre-arrest diversion: What it's about? Why it matters? Why you should be doing it.
  • Using the Illinois learning collaborative to support MAR implementation for justice involved populations.
  • Building communities of recovery.
  • Reducing substance use stigma: What works to create positive change.
