The conference is a proactive effort to build a collaborative response to the opioid crisis in Kansas.

DCCCA is committed to addressing current topics and issues throughout the conference. Proposals are requested for workshops that emphasize knowledge-sharing, skills-building, practical application and audience participation. Sessions should focus on emerging trends, build skills and knowledge, and advocate for best practices to address the prescription drug and opioid crisis across disciplines.

Note: presenters may submit proposals on other topics; however, they must relate to prescription drug and/or opioid misuse prevention.
