MARSHFIELD – The HOPE Consortium has opened registration for its fifth annual HOPE Consortium Conference, which will be held virtually Aug. 5-6.
“The conference is designed for treatment and recovery service providers, criminal justice partners, human services, prevention professionals, and community and tribal leaders featuring sessions on substance use disorder treatment and recovery. Individuals who work or reside in Clark, Forest, Iron, Jackson, Portage, Price, Oneida, Vilas, or Wood counties or Forest County Potawatomi, Ho Chunk, Lac du Flambeau Chippewa, or Sokaogon Chippewa tribal nations are encouraged to attend. However, anyone interested in substance use disorder prevention, treatment, and recovery in rural Wisconsin is invited to attend,” a Marshfield Clinic Health System release stated.

The HOPE Consortium, formed in 2015, is a partnership of organizations in northern Wisconsin that came together in response to grant funding available under Wisconsin HOPE legislation to address growing problems associated with opioid misuse. It was expanded in 2017 to include the provision of care for those affected by methamphetamine use, and expanded in 2020 to central Wisconsin.
Those served include adults and affected family members, with priority for those of childbearing age, who live in Clark, Forest, Iron, Jackson, Portage, Price, Oneida, Vilas, or Wood counties or Forest County Potawatomi, Ho Chunk, Lac du Flambeau Chippewa, or Sokaogon Chippewa tribal nations, who are seeking substance use disorder treatment and recovery support.
