2017 Opioid Summit - Mecklenburg County Collaborative Call to Action

A one day community featured speakers from Anuvia Prevention & Recovery Center, Mecklenburg County Criminal Justice Services, Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department and many more to raise awareness of how substance use disorders are impacting our area.

  • prevent overdose
  • increase education
