At Hill Day 2015, October 5-6, 2015, you’ll get the inside scoop on policy trends that are reshaping the way addiction providers do business. Join us to hear from federal officials, national policy experts and health plans about their vision for the future of addiction care—and what we need to do to get there.

Reforming the Response to Substance Use: A Drug Policy for the 21st Century.
Michael Botticelli, Director of the White House’s Office of National Drug Control Policy, leads the Obama Administration’s drug policy efforts and helps to advance historic drug policy reforms and innovations in prevention, criminal justice, treatment and recovery. But Director Botticelli is not just a “public health guy.” He’s also been in recovery from addiction for more than 25 years and uses his voice to lead our nation’s approach to substance use disorders away from incarceration and toward treatment and recovery. You won’t want to miss his insights on creating a drug policy for the 21st century.

An Update from Washington: Recent Developments Impacting Access to Substance Use Disorder Services
The Legal Action Center’s president Paul Samuels and senior policy team will discuss current progress on health reform, parity enforcement, Medicaid’s payment exclusion for residential care, and more. You’ll learn about recent developments in criminal justice reform and federal funding for substance use programs, and opportunities for improving federal policy into the future.

Managed Care’s Perspective on Addiction Treatment
This panel will take you on a deep dive into the evolving world of Medicaid managed care. Parity and health reform have increased coverage for substance use disorders and led to a growth in addiction providers partnering with managed care. Participants will learn what managed behavioral health care organizations are doing to engage people in treatment, address the opioid crisis and prescription abuse, and reduce stigma.
