Hope In healing native opioid summit

The Community Health Education & Resiliency Program (CHERP) is sponsoring the 2023 Hope in Healing Native Opioid Summit at the Sky Ute Casino Hotel in Ignacio, Colorado from March 27-28, 2023.

The Hope in Healing Native Opioid Summit is funded through the Community Opioid Intervention Pilot Project grant from the Indian Health Service. In it's second year, the Summit aims to share trauma informed, and people centered substance use prevention, treatment, recovery, and cultural practice with professionals working in tribal communities.
