We are all aware of the devastating statistics …

Here in North Carolina alone, over 2,000 residents die of an Opioid overdose each year. Thousands more are in the unyielding grip of Opioid use disorder and addiction. 41 of our 100 counties are identified as High Risk For Opioid Use Disorder. Opioid-related overdose deaths have doubled within the past 10 years.

Even more devastating are the sad stories …

The Opioid epidemic is now so widespread that it touches every community. No neighborhood, socioeconomic group, age range, ethnic group, school district, or large organization has been unaffected. People whose lives hold such promise struggle to break free from Opioids’ relentless hold. Far too many fail, despite their best efforts. Most Opioid overdose victims leave behind countless loved ones, whose lives are permanently damaged by this unbearable loss.


The American Institute of Healthcare & Fitness®, its tenants, and other concerned organizations such as our nonprofit partner, Recovery Communities of North Carolina (RCNC), are pulling together to provide awareness, advice, information, and inspiration for the people of North Carolina and beyond. This coalition is dedicated to addressing the stigma by helping our participants get beyond the fear to help to save a life.

The People’s Opioid Summit brings together Opioid Use Disorder subject matter experts of all types. We will provide attendees with the all-encompassing resources they need, regardless of how this epidemic is impacting their lives and their loved ones.

We envision bringing this expertise to the individuals, families, and professional communities that need it most. This is truly a people’s summit, designed to get information and solutions into the hands of everyday citizens affected most by this crisis.


The People’s Opioid Summit will take place Tuesday, October 5 – Thursday, October 7, 2021 online.

Attendees will be able to participate remotely, by logging in to view workshops, panels, breakout sessions, and keynote speakers throughout the day, or after the event. Participants will also have access to resource materials distributed during the summit, as well as to extensive additional information from the Summit website.

The overarching vision of the People’s Opioid Summit is to provide an ongoing service.  More than a 3-day activity, we envision the People’s Opioid Summit as a meaningful resource that will make a significant difference in the lives of the people we serve for an extended period of time.


At this time, we are in the process of finalizing our schedule and speaker lineup. Planned sessions and activities include:

  • Keynote presentations
  • Specialized Informational tracks for:
    • HR Professionals
    • Students
  • Personal Stories
  • Panel Discussions
  • Networking Opportunities for Sponsors, Vendors, Speakers, and Attendees
  • Artistic & Creative Celebrations of Recovery, Memory, and more
