Loux Healthcare Center • Univest Conference Rooms

We have seen dramatic changes in addictive substances over time. Fentanyl has devastated our region, “tranq” (xylazine) use has escalated, THC potency has transformed cannabis, and poly-substance use is much more common.

We’ll address the trends being seen by behavioral health professionals and experienced by people in recovery, and we’ll explore community-based efforts, including harm reduction and treatment options.

This program will include naloxone training and education. Thank you to St. Luke’s Penn Foundation for providing Narcan doses and test strips, which will be available for distribution at the program.
