About The Forum

The 2023 COSSUP National Forum’s theme is COSSUP: Championing the Power of Recovery and Hope. Session topics include:

  • Maximizing resources through multidisciplinary partnerships, including law enforcement/first responder collaborations.
  • Post-arrest interventions for individuals with a substance use disorder, including pre-trial diversion, jail-based medication-assisted treatment, and continuum of care services upon reentry.
  • The unique value and role of peer recovery support services across the sequential intercept model.
  • The use of specialized data tools and processes to address drug use, including overdose fatality reviews (OFRs), prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs), and the Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program (ODMAP).
  • Treatment best practices and spotlight programs, including BJA’s Residential Substance Abuse Treatment for State Prisoners Program.
  • Projects and strategies to support specific communities, including Indian Country, rural America, and families and children—the youngest victims of the crisis.
  • Safeguarding the health and well-being of colleagues on the front lines of the epidemic.

Throughout the event, attendees will have opportunities to ask panelists questions, engage in mentoring opportunities, and network with peers.
