About the Rx Summit
The Rx Drug Abuse & Heroin Summit is the largest, most influential collaboration of professionals and advocates addressing the opioid and addiction crisis. It is where strategies are shared and put into action.
The Rx Summit regularly draws more than 3,000 people from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canada, and other countries.
Attendees should include: Counselors, social workers, therapists, psychologists, and interventionists; physicians, psychiatrists, nurses, pharmacists, and dentists; advocates, families, and people in recovery; law enforcement personnel; public health and prevention officials; federal, state, and local officials, and lawmakers; education specialists and researchers; treatment center owners and operators; attorneys; first responders; and business leaders.
Through this type of collaboration, your work can be more impactful in bringing solutions to this issue that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) declared a public health crisis in 2012.
Hope Ambassadors embody the “why” behind the Rx Drug Abuse & Heroin Summit. It is an opportunity to share the message of hope – that it is possible to recover from addiction.
The Hope Ambassadors program, created in 2023, highlights the stories of people in recovery and those who have influenced the recovery journey of others. These men and women have struggled with the disease of addiction and now, as Hope Ambassadors, they are inspiring others to join with them on their recovery journey.
There are many forms of recovery, and there are many people who play key roles in making it possible. The work we do at the Rx Summit through sessions, workshops, and networking gives our community the power to create more stories of recovery and thus a stronger sense of hope.
