PHOENIX, Feb. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Sovereign Health, a national behavioral health system, is proud to announce that Anthony J. Mele, Psy.D., Chief Clinical Officer of Sovereign Health, will be a guest panelist at the "Driving Community Solutions for the Opioid Crisis," on Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2017, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. MT at Maggiano's Little Italy. At the conference, organized by Addiction Professional magazine, Dr. Mele will join a panel to discuss how treatment professionals can better work together and become effective change agents for educating the public, as well as helping to bring about a comprehensive prevention and broad-based treatment strategy.

The opioid crisis has become America's No. 1 public health emergency. Treatment professionals are in a position to influence everyday citizens and policymakers alike, but finding the right avenues can be a challenge. At the same time, treatment professionals can struggle with staying up-to-date on the latest developments in America's prescription drug abuse and heroin epidemic.
