All in For Florida: Hospital Intervention Summit

The Florida Alcohol and Drug Abuse Association (FADAA), in collaboration with the Florida Hospital Association (FHA) and the Florida College of Emergency Physicians (FCEP) invites you to attend the All in For Florida: Hospital Intervention” summit to be held on August 14 at the Hilton Bonnet Creek.

The goal of the project is to improve Florida’s system of care by linking hospital systems with community-based behavioral health programs to provide treatment, transitional support and other wrap-around services to prevent readmissions to hospital emergency departments due to opioid overdoses. The purpose of this program is to develop processes and relationships between hospitals and community service providers that will enable hospitals to provide a robust referral to treatment and other services through a person-to-person link (warm handoff).

This one-day summit is developed specifically for hospital administrators, emergency physicians, and community providers specifically in mind. Speakers will discuss barriers and strategies to address the opioid epidemic that is killing more than 20+ people a day in Florida. It will also provide information on recent laws passed in Florida and provide case studies showcasing Florida’s flagship programs that have established effective programming linking individuals with opioid use disorders to treatment, thus reducing hospital emergency readmissions.

The cost to attend the pre-conference summit is $45. Lunch is provided. Register Here
