The annual Interfaith-Based Substance Use Disorders Conference and Training is on Connecting Community, Spirituality & Wellness: Chasing Circumstances or Changing Conditions. The focus for this year’s two-day conference is on “DWIHN 2023 9th Annual Interfaith-Based “WELLNESS BEYOND THE WALLS” “You Are Not Forgotten” Conference 2023 – We have two Keynote Speakers that will encourage, educate and uplift the youth and clergy in our community by responding to our call to action:
To respond to needs of the community through SUD and Mental Health
To connect faith-based leaders with educators, researchers and professionals within our network
To create progressive dialogue and to address real concerns that faith-based organizations face within the communities they serve.
As a part of our (DWIHN) commitment to providing a holistic approach to care, this conference aims to connect faith-based leaders with educators, researchers and professionals to create progressive dialogue and to address real concerns that faith-based organizations face within the communities and congregations they serve. Submissions are sought for workshop presentations focused on mental health and/or substance use disorder while incorporating the needs of the faith based community. With the rise in Heroin, Opioids, Prescription Drugs, Tobacco: Marijuana/Vaping, Alcohol/Underage Drinking, Stigma, Human Trafficking, Suicide and Gambling, we are here to educate, advocate and create an opportunity to engage with, hear from youth and adult leaders and dialogue with interfaith based leaders. Our plan is to offer collaborative resources available to the communities of faith and its members. We encourage faith-based organizations and their representatives to attend.
