About the Event

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)Over 81,000 drug overdose deaths occurred in the United States in the 12 months ending in May 2020, the highest number of overdose deaths ever recorded in a 12-month period.

CDC Director Robert Redfield, M.D., stated, “The disruption to daily life due to the COVID-19 pandemic has hit those with substance use disorder hard.” The overdose and relapse can be attributed to the stress caused by the pandemic. COVID 19 has not only impacted individuals as it relates to health but financially as well.

Unemployment Rates During Covid 19 Pandemic, a report issued by the Congressional Research Service reported a rise in unemployment. “ This rise in unemployment was caused by an unprecedented loss of 22.1 million jobs between January 2020 and April 2020.

Many individuals left the labor force over this period, and by April 2020 the labor force participation rate declined to a level not seen since the early 1970s.” In addiction, due to COVID- some people who required substance use treatment stayed away from rehabilitation centers for fears of contracting the virus. The economic, mental and emotional stress has impacted everyone. However, our most vulnerable population has felt the brunt of this pandemic.

In an effort to provide support for clinicals, people who have a loved one in recovery or for individuals in recovery we have created this workshop.
