The New England School of Addiction and Prevention Studies, often called Summer School, is a 5-day (June 7-11) intensive, virtual learning experience to further knowledge, skills, and experience in the field of substance use disorder services. Each year, participants from many disciplines come together to form a unique, diverse learning community.

A Note about the 2021 New England School of Addiction and Prevention Studies Program:
For over 50 years, we have welcomed new and returning Summer School participants to experience the unique learning environment of the New England School of Addiction and Prevention Studies. In 2020, near the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we quickly pivoted to a virtual format to ensure that the school continued. This year, for the safety of our Summer School community, we will again gather virtually. We understand that many attendees each year plan on the Summer School for their professional development, and many depend on a large number of contact hours offered for their credentialing. Addiction remains a critical issue, particularly as New England and the world experiences the COVID-19 pandemic and our field. We thank our faculty, planners, and state agency and state and regional training partners for their assistance in ensuring that a strong online program is available...We are pleased to offer this Virtual “Re-Imagined 2.0” New England School of Addiction and Prevention Studies.
