APRIL 13 - 16 exhibiting Rx Drug Abuse & Heroin Summit

Integrated Medical Case Solutions (Ascellus Group), the leading provider of work-related trauma prevention and treatment with a proven track record of transforming workers’ compensation cases with notable success in early return-to-work outcomes, is exhibiting at the Rx Drug Abuse & Heroin Summit in Nashville, Tennessee, April 13 – 16, 2020. 

The Rx Drug Abuse & Heroin Summit, the largest annual conference addressing the opioid crisis, aims to create solutions and change at the local, state and federal levels. The summit brings together over 3,500 government and academic professionals, treatment providers and community stakeholders impacted by heroin use and prescription drug abuse from around the country. 

Key speakers will include Robert Wilkie, Secretary of Veterans Affairs; Nora Valkow, MD Director, National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA); Hal Rogers, U.S. Congressman for Kentucky’s 5th Congressional District; Beth Macy, Author of Dopesick and more. Important discussions will include What Employers Can Do to Address the Opioid Crisis, Rekindling Compassion: Reducing Stigma and Burnout in First Responders, Payer Innovations: Anthem Addresses Opioid Negative Health Outcomes Through Field-Based Case Management and more.

As leaders in injury/trauma prevention, identification and intervention for early return-to-work, we understand that treating addicts successfully requires a combination of closely monitored medication and psychological intervention. Non-drug therapies, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, are proven to be more effective in combating chronic pain and have no opioid side effects.
