A Note about the 2022 New England Summer Programs:
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, and, for 30 years the New England School of Best Practices. In 2020, early in the COVID-19 pandemic, we quickly pivoted to a virtual format to ensure that these schools continue. This year, for the safety of our Summer School and Best Practices School communities and to ensure their availability for all, we will again gather virtually. We understand that many attendees each year plan on the Summer School or the Best Practices School for their professional development, and many depend on the large number of contact hours offered for their credentialing. Addiction remains a critical issue, and our field's important work is needed more than ever. Thank you to our faculty, planners, state agency and state and regional training partners, and our School staff for their assistance in ensuring that a strong online program is available again this year...We are pleased to offer this Virtual 30th Anniversary New England School of Best Practices in Addiction Services!
