The interaction of illicit substances and prescription drugs has grown increasingly complex in recent years due to media attention, changes to criminal justice policies, and political influence. How are social workers and other helping professionals to adapt to these changes?

Participants of this workshop will learn about social implications of legalized marijuana from states that now allow both medical and recreational use. Use of case scenarios will help highlight ethical complexities.

In addition, a panel discussion will address the local response to opioid addiction and explore areas of collaboration and partnership with social services.
