Saving Our Children: Innovative Approaches to Addiction Treatment

The Addiction Institute of Mount Sinai and Center on Addiction are joining forces to implement evidence-based screening, preventative practices, and treatment tailored to young people. We’d like to invite you to our kick-off panel discussion and reception celebrating the launch of our alliance.

Justin Luke Riley, the founder and CEO of Young People in Recovery, will moderate a discussion about the complexities of providing treatment to young adults with addiction. The panel will also explore innovative solutions to these challenges, followed by Q&A from the audience. Panelists include Yasmin Hurd, PhD, director of the Addiction Institute at Mount Sinai; Charles J. Neighbors, PhD, MBA, director of Health Services Research at Center on Addiction; and Bill Williams, who lost his son to an overdose after the medical system profoundly failed him.

Please RSVP by Oct. 8 by emailing catherine.morris@mssm.edu or aroley@centeronaddiction.org. 

If you are unable to attend in person, you can watch the discussion via  Facebook Live on the Icahn School of Medicine page.
