On Tuesday, November 19th, over 150 individuals gathered at Seton Hall Law School for Integrity House’s first symposium: Progressive Responses to the Opioid Epidemic. More than a dozen experts from the medical, legal and treatment fields – all doing remarkable and cutting-edge work in addictions – discussed harm reduction, innovative treatment approaches and making treatment mainstream. The symposium also included keynote presentations from New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, and Integrity House Medical Director Tony Rajiv Juneja, MD. Throughout the day, audience members asked meaningful questions, engaged in thought provoking conversations, and even participated in a brief mindfulness exercise led by Dr. Petros Levounis.

We’d like to extend our sincere gratitude to our collaborating partners, Rutgers New Jersey Medical School and Seton Hall University School of Law. Their staunch support of our vision for this symposium makes us proud and honored to work with them and call them our friends.
