Welcome to the New Jersey Department of Human Services, Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services 2022 Opioid Summit! The purpose of this Summit is to present relevant, research-based information to addiction professionals, medical professionals, nursing professionals, social workers, peers, family members and other community stakeholders. Numerous initiatives have been created throughout New Jersey to support treatment and recovery services for opioid use disorder (OUD).

This Summit aims to address the impact of COVID-19 on OUD, as well as provide information on medication for opioid use disorder (MOUD), alternatives to pain medications, OUD and mental health, harm reduction, innovative, evidence-based and best practices for OUD treatment, recovery support systems, and OUD treatment.
