Conference Overall Description: Our local communities in Maryland are riddled with overdose, crime, suicide and depression, in most cases, morbidly connected with substance use and abuse. This conference will provide an overview of the ever-evolving epidemic that plagues our youth, family, students, co-workers or friends. An in-depth look into the toxicity of new emerging drugs,  avoiding burnout as a provider, brain based recovery (CBT), stress management in early recovery, as well as a plenary update on the heroin epidemic in Harford County and the state of Maryland will be addressed.

Overall Conference Objectives:

1.) Identify and examine current substance abuse trends, emerging "designer" drugs and their chemical class, toxicity, physiology and effects.  

2.) Identify at least 5 words, phrases and behaviors in the limbic area of the brain and how that hampers recovery.

3.) Identify the ten gold standard stress management techniques and their comparison to basic tools for staying sober. 

4.) Discuss techniques to avoid burnout as a provider in an era of Naloxone and Safe Rooms.
