Building Successful Overdose Prevention and Response Programs in Community Corrections

Community supervision officers are uniquely positioned to reduce overdose risk among individuals under supervision. Set your staff up for success with additional education on substance use disorders and training in evidence-based overdose prevention practices, including approaches to building trust and rapport with people under supervision.

To support overdose prevention and response initiatives in community supervision settings, the National Council for Mental Wellbeing, with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), created a series of free, self-paced courses with essential information for community supervision officers, leaders and administrators to successfully implement overdose prevention and response practices within their work. Join us for a webinar on Wednesday, June 14, 2-3 p.m. ET to learn more.

This webinar will:

  1. Discuss the importance and benefits of overdose prevention and response within community supervision settings.
  2. Explore strategies to integrate overdose prevention and risk reduction into community supervision programs.
  3. Introduce a series of self-paced courses on overdose prevention and response for community supervision officers, leaders and administrators.

National Council staff will be joined by experts in the field who will share their stories about how they integrated overdose prevention and response strategies within their community supervision programs.
