Many people with addiction and in recovery are unaware of their civil rights under the ADA. Our panelists will discuss current and future trends in civil rights issues and enforcement for people in recovery from substance and opioid use disorders. This subject is complex due to developing court cases. Panelists include: Gregory Dorchak, Special Assistant MA U.S. Civil Rights Attorney; Jared Owen, Public Policy and Communications Director at Massachusetts Organization for Addiction Recovery; and Moderator Oce Harrison ED.d, Project Director of the New England ADA Center. We will begin promptly at noon.

Questions and reasonable accommodation request, contact Stacy Hart at shart@IHCDesign.org or 1-800-949-4232

For an accommodation, please make request by July 18th.

Light Refreshment will be provided. This is a scent and nut free event. Free and open to the public.
