CAPS to host conversation about substance abuse, community

Counseling and Prevention Services (CAPS) will host “Stigmas, Stereotypes and Safety: A conversation about substance abuse and use in our community” at 1 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 23 in 231 Hubbard Hall.

Dylan Dunn, assistant director of SAFE Campuses at SAFE (Stop the Addiction Fatality Epidemic) Project, will discuss how society views and approaches substance use and addiction while also teaching participants how to navigate and better understand the current realities of fentanyl. Through a mixture of reflective and practical discussion, participants will develop a greater understanding of the role they all play in supporting students impacted by substance use and how they can directly prevent overdose and empower recovery.
