The Opioid Crisis & the Pandemic

During this unprecedented time, it has never been more important to understand and recognize the mental health needs of ourselves and those around us. In recognition of World Mental Health Day, observed on October 10th, Chicago Behavioral Hospital has partnered with MaineStay Youth & Family Services, the Park Ridge Opioid Advisory Group, and the Park Ridge Community Health Commission to offer a free webinar entitled “Opioid Crisis and the Pandemic”. This presentation will include a panel of local experts who will discuss topics related to the use and misuse of opioids before and during the COVID-19 pandemic. Opioid use and overdose deaths continue to rise during the pandemic. Learn about the nature of addiction, the etiology of opioid misuse, contributing factors, and available treatment options.
