Orange County’s Drug Free Office to Host Annual Treatment and Recovery Conference

Orange County, FL – Orange County’s Office for a Drug-Free Community will host the 23rd Annual Orange County Drug Free Coalition Treatment, Intervention and Recovery Conference on Friday, June 14, 2024, at the Renaissance Center, located at 3800 S. Econlockhatchee Trail in Orlando. The conference begins at 9 a.m. The theme of this year’s event is “Working Better Together,” which was chosen by members of The Drug Free Community Coalition.

“‘Working Better Together’ demonstrates how professionals who focus on physical and mental health and social services can collaborate to improve patient outcomes,” said Dr. Thomas Hall, Manager for the Orange County Office for a Drug-Free Community. “A team approach reduces the fragmented care of the past.”

Registration for the event is open to healthcare professionals, community members and residents. The event will feature a series of experts, medical professionals, and community leaders who will discuss innovative approaches and strategies for preventing drug abuse, supporting recovery, and raising awareness.

Anyone interested in attending the event can register through Eventbrite.
