  • CHP Drug Impairment Intervention Training
    All day
    August 11, 2022-August 12, 2022
    Overview:

    With approximately 118,000 individuals enrolling in Driving-Under-the-Influence (DUI) programs annually, there is an opportunity to expand intervention and outreach amongst individuals with underlying opioid use disorder (OUD) and/or substance use disorder (SUD). In addition to DUI programs serving as intervention programs, others working in and around the SUD field with the knowledge and ability to promptly recognize drug impairment are at a greater advantage to provide those at-risk with an opportunity for immediate intervention and direction to appropriate services to assist individuals seeking recovery services and support. The California Highway Patrol (CHP), Impaired Driving Section (IDS), will deliver training intended to increase awareness of physiologic signs and symptoms associated with drug use and impairment, with an emphasis on opioids.
    The Drug Impairment Intervention Training (DIIT) is funded through the State Opioid Response grant as part of the MAT Expansion Project from the California Department of Health Care Services.

     

    Who Should Attend:

     

    • DUI Program Staff
    • Registered/Certified Counselors
    • Licensed/Credentialed Professionals
    • Registered Interns
    • Parole/Probation Officers
    • County employees
    • Mental Health professionals

  • NATIONAL FENTANYL PREVENTION AND AWARENESS DAY
    All day
    August 22, 2022

    Affected families throughout the United States are warning the public about the emergent dangers of illicit fentanyl. Advocates for victims of illicit fentanyl poisoning have been sounding the alarm and
    pleading for a whole of government response to address this deadly epidemic. As the death toll rises and more families grieve, advocates and affected family members are taking initiative where our government
    is failing to act.

    Illicit Fentanyl is 100 times more potent than morphine and 50 times stronger than heroin. Drug cartels make and supply deadly illicit fentanyl either as a standalone substance, as an additive laced in  other dangerous street drugs, such as heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamine, or as substitutes for these drugs. Illicit fentanyl is purposely and deceptively added to other drugs because of its extreme potency, making drugs cheaper, more powerful, more addictive, and more dangerous. Illicit fentanyl has also been identified in counterfeit prescription pills. These fake pills are made to look identical to legitimate prescription pills — such as Oxycontin®, Percocet®, Vicodin®, Adderall®, Xanax® and other medicines—and have been found in every state in the country. Criminal drug networks are also harnessing the accessibility of social media to push deadly drugs into American communities.

    National Fentanyl Prevention and Awareness Day August 21

    For the first time in our nation’s history, over 100,000 people have died of drug overdose in a single year. Illicit fentanyl further fueled the opioid epidemic, and fentanyl poisoning and “overdose” is now the leading cause of death for adults aged 18-45 in the United States, surpassing suicide, gun violence and car accidents. Fentanyl deaths in America across all age groups doubled from 32,745 fatalities to 62,178 fatalities in the two-year period between April 2019 and April 2021. Over 150 people die every day in the United States from “overdose” poisoning related to synthetic opioids like illicit fentanyl, which means a fentanyl-related death occurs approximately every nine minutes. Tracking of deaths and poisonings has been insufficient and we believe the current data falls short of he actuality of the current crisis. National Illicit Fentanyl Prevention and Awareness Day is established in remembrance of the loved ones who lost their lives due to illicit fentanyl poisoning, and to acknowledge the devastation this drug brings to hundreds of thousands of affected family members and friends. Advocates and educators will use this day to raise awareness and educate the public about the dangers of fentanyl. This coordinated day of response from multiple fentanyl awareness organizations will include participation by affected families who will share their lived experiences as part of the effort to warn and inform the general public, our youth and the unsuspecting.
