Liberating Methadone Conference: Building a Roadmap and Community for Change
On September 21 and 22, 2023, the center held its Liberating Methadone Conference in collaboration with the National Survivors Union and National Coalition to Liberate Methadone, bringing together 800 people (in person and virtually) to discuss and exchange ideas on how to improve access to and use of methadone to reduce the harms of opioid use. If you missed the conference, please see below for access to the recordings.
Day 1: September 21
Day 2: September 22
Day 2 closing: September 22
This conference brought together members from various backgrounds to discuss and exchange ideas on how to improve access to and use of methadone to reduce the harms of opioid use. The goal was to break down traditional barriers between researchers, clinicians, policymakers, and people who use drugs and to create a shared space for collective understanding. Conference proceedings will be gathered to generate a report with actionable recommendations for policy and clinical practice.
Funding for this conference was made possible by the Pew Charitable Trusts and Vital Strategies with support from Bloomberg Philanthropies, an R13 DA058520 from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), and the NYU-H+H Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI), which is supported by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), National Institutes of Health, through Grant Award Number UL1TR001445.
