MN SUD Summit

Substance use disorder continues to devastate communities, and is killing an increasing number of friends, siblings, neighbors and co-workers. Minnesota needs all hands on deck to stem the growing tide of destruction caused by drugs and alcohol.

The upcoming SUD Shared Solutions Summit is a collaborative effort where participants will begin work on a three-to-five year strategic action plan to improve Minnesota's substance use disorder system. Anyone who is impacted by substance use disorder or interested in improving Minnesota’s treatment system is invited to attend.

The summit will take place at the Elmer L. Andersen Human Services Building in St. Paul on Jan. 10 and 11, 2023. A virtual option will be offered for those who cannot attend in person.

Organizers are determining final details of the summit, and once ready, will share those details on the Minnesota SUD Shared Solutions Summit webpage.

The summit will include keynote speakers and a selection of interactive breakout sessions. Sessions will focus on key themes identified during listening sessions hosted by summit organizers on Oct. 12, 2022.

  • A Coordinated, Holistic, Integrated Continuum of Care
  • Prevention & Education
  • Cultural Engagement & Responsiveness
  • Funding & Workforce
  • Law, Policy & the Criminal Justice System

Learn more about the Oct. 12 listening sessions and read responses from participants on the Minnesota SUD Shared Solutions Summit webpage.

In the coming weeks, summit organizers will share an agenda and information on how to register. Organizers will also share other pertinent details, such as information about parking and lodging. Make sure to check your email, follow the Minnesota Department of Human Services Facebook page and bookmark the Minnesota SUD Shared Solutions Summit webpage for updates.

The SUD Shared Solutions Summit is a collaborative effort between The Minnesota Association of Resources for Recovery and Chemical Health, Project Turnabout, Niyyah Recovery Initiative, the American Indian Chemical Dependence Advisory Council, Alluma, Minneapolis College, the Association of Minnesota Counties, the Minnesota Department of Human Services, the Minnesota Department of Health and the Governor's Office.
