The Opioid Overdose Epidemic: Current Trends, Treatment, and Hope for the Future


Ted Bender, PhD, LCDC

Presenter Bio

Dr. Bender is a seasoned leader in managing dual diagnosis treatment centers with a focus on substance use disorders. His work in mental and behavioral health is rooted in his experience as a suicide researcher with one of the world’s leading experts on the topic. His work with the Military Suicide Research Consortium included identifying risk factors for military suicides. While working with veterans at Brown University, Dr. Bender observed a tremendous amount of substance use issues and pursued the link between suicide and substance use disorders. As Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Bender’s vision for Addiction Campuses’ Treehouse and Turning Point facilities is to become a beacon of hope in the community by encouraging local law enforcement, local businesses, the medical community, and local government to work towards results in the effort against addiction and overdose.
