Addiction Policy Forum Webinar: Xylazine Prevalence and Response Strategies
September 22, 2023 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Xylazine is a non-opioid tranquilizer used in veterinary medicine and is increasingly found as an adulterant in the illicit drug supply. Researchers, public health officials, and community leaders are working to address xylazine in prevention, clinical care, and overdose prevention.
Panelists will discuss the prevalence and toxicology of xylazine, overdose response strategies, and what healthcare professionals and criminal justice practitioners can do to respond. This webinar is sponsored by the Justice Community Opioid Innovation Network (JCOIN) at the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), in partnership with the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) and the Addiction Policy Forum.
