Building Pathways to Address SUD: Cross-Sector Approaches to Addressing Substance Use Disorder

November 17, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

In many communities, COVID-19 has created new challenges for stakeholders interested in addressing the Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Crisis. The pandemic has increased risk factors like job loss, stress, and isolation, while requiring new and innovative methods to safely provide treatment and support. This session will highlight the different resources offered by government agencies that can be beneficial to those in recovery, families, communities, the nonprofit sector and employers, as well as provide you some real world examples of how foundations can work in collaboration with those agencies.

Rachel Thaxton, Assistant Director of the Office of Drug Control Policy in West Virginia, will share recently released resources by the West Virginia Department of Health & Human Resources for use in recovery. Crystal Ward Allen of Casey Family Programs will discuss the collaborative Ohio START (Sobriety, Treatment, and Reducing Trauma) program, launched in 2017 with the Ohio Attorney General’s office.

This webinar is made possible in partnership with a coalition of  Philanthropy Serving Organizations (PSOs), including Philanthropy West Virginia, Philanthropy Ohio, Indiana Philanthropy Alliance, Gateway Center for Giving and Council of Michigan Foundations.

This event is free for Philanthropy WV members, and $50 for non-members.  To register please email  To purchase a non-member registration, please click HERE.
