The Lethal & Economic Impact of Illegal Drugs & Opioids in Indian Country

The Lethal and Economic Impact of Illegal Drugs and Opioids in Indian Country November 8th and 9th, 2017

Do you know what is in your home, school, playground, workplace, casino, etc.,
when it comes to illegal drugs and opioids?

This is the second in a series of four trainings on the epidemic of drugs and opioids and its effects in Indian Country.

Illegal drugs and opioids are available everywhere under all types of names and forms.  The trainings will cover a variety of topics including education on methamphetamine and fentanyl/oxycodone, what’s available on the street, the deadly risks of drug usage, and much more.

The impacts of drug usage are not just about the drug user, all members of the community suffer the consequences. Endangerment to children and youth is real and present, and oftentimes how they cope is through responses such as cutting and suicide ideation. This training introduces the program Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), and the unique topic of a native centered perspective on cutting. 

In addition, every tribal community is experiencing economic shortfalls in the services they provide due to increasing illegal drug activity and reductions in budget allocations.  The cost of combating and treating illegal drug and opioid costs are rising.  The training begins to address the overwhelming economic impact.

“Gaining awareness and education about drugs and opioids assists in combating the problem”

Who should attend:  Everyone, specifically employees, board members and commissioners, tribal council members, law enforcement, social services, medical personnel, custodians, security, housekeepers, casino staff, bus drivers, maintenance, education staff, inspectors, housing staff, and other interested individuals.

Participants will receive certificate and CEUs will be available.
