APPA hosts and in partnership with The National Alliance To Stop Impaired Driving (NASID) and Responsibility.org, this session will train attendees on recognizing the signs of cannabis impairment during a Green Lab. Volunteers who have consumed cannabis will be put through a series of tests to demonstrate the observable signs and symptoms of impairment, specifically, how cannabis impacts a person’s ability to drive. Volunteers will undergo a mock roadside sobriety assessment by law enforcement to demonstrate how officers detect impairment. All attendees will be given the opportunity to observe the volunteers to highlight their own observations of impairment.
The opioid epidemic impacting the United States has become so severe that in recent years substance overdoses, fueled by opioid addictions, has surpassed deaths by car accidents and guns. Further, opioid addiction is the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 50. There has long been a relationship between substance use and criminal justice involvement; and, consequently, overdose deaths from opioids among individuals under supervision have been disproportionately higher than those in the general population. Individuals under community supervision are at higher risk of overdose - particularly when released release from custody. This session will help correctional agencies, probation officers and parole agents (who are responsible for supervising individuals with opioid and other substance addiction) better understand the efficacy of Medications for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD), implement practices to support recovery, reduce overdoses, and improve outcomes.

Although hundreds of community corrections professionals will join us in beautiful Seattle, APPA recognizes that travel is still difficult for many during these uncertain times. As such, our goal is to be THE supplemental educational resource for your agency. For that reason, APPA is proudly hosting this training institute as a hybrid event. So, for those of you who are unable to join us in Seattle, you can reap the many benefits from participating in relevant training while at home or in the office by purchasing a virtual ticket.
As a reminder, you get the benefit of live-streamed sessions, on-demand workshops, and webinar recordings.
