Federal action strategies for reducing overdose deaths to be presented at the
2015 HERO HELPS Community Forum

ROMEOVILLE – Captain Jeffery Coady, PsyD, Regional Administrator, U.S. Dept. of Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration will present federal action strategies for reducing heroin and other drug overdose deaths at the 2015 HERO HELPS Community Forum, scheduled for Friday April 10th,

Federal action strategies span a broad range of substance use prevention, treatment and recovery initiatives.

“Addictions are a chronic health disorder, not a personal weakness or moral failure,” said Coady. “Collaborations between public health and public safety are essential for effective opioid overdose prevention strategies.”

Families, public officials, law enforcement, healthcare providers, educators and the public are all encouraged to attend this event and learn more about the heroin and other drug overdose crisis and potential solutions. In addition to information on federal, state, and county wide strategies, the event includes a resource expo with representatives from more than 30 organizations providing information on their services.
Free CME’s and CEU’s are being provided for medical, licensed social work and counselor professionals, and addiction prevention, treatment and recovery support professionals.
The 2015 HERO HELPS Community Forum will begin with registration at 8 a.m. and conclude at noon. The event is being held in the Edward Hospital Athletic and Event Center, 55 Phelps Avenue in Romeoville. For more information visit the website, www.herohelpsevent.com
