WRDE's Keynote: A New Prescription for Pain- Flipping the Script on the Worst Public Health Crisis Our Nation Has Ever Seen:   (SOLD OUT)

Now you can get required BODEX CE for our keynote!

Opioid abuse is all over the news, and it's a hotly-debated topic here in Arizona. Governor Ducey signed the Opioid Epidemic Act, which mandated that Schedule II drugs must be prescribed electronically by Jan 1, 2019, and ALL prescribers are required to complete CE on opioids to renew their license. BODEX recognizes chemical dependency courses as meeting these new requirements.

And sure, you can get that CE by listening to a mind-numbing speaker drone on about the dangers of opioid abuse, but that's not going to happen at WRDE.

WRDE 2019 is excited to bring to you addiction treatment expert Austin Eubanks. Austin shares a vulnerable and raw glimpse at how injuries and emotional trauma drastically affected his life, leading to years of substance abuse and, ultimately, a recovery that prompted his efforts in patient advocacy. You will not forget him or his journey.

Through his pain, Austin has devoted his career to helping those who have journeyed into addiction by way of trauma. He shares his thoughts regarding the addiction pandemic, drug policy, and the underlying issues of emotional pain and trauma.

You're going to leave this keynote address feeling different--guaranteed.

Don't miss it.
