The New England School of Addiction and Prevention Studies, commonly called Summer School, is an intensive 4-day learning experience to further knowledge, skills, and experience in the field of substance use disorder services.

This year will be our second hybrid year, with options to attend the program in person in Worcester or to attend the program virtually!

We are delighted to return to Worcester State University for a face-to-face program.
Due to the demand for intensive Summer School program online, we are happy to also offer a live virtual program.

  • Addressing health disparities and equity issues;
  • Behavioral healthcare and primary care integration;
  • Recovery oriented care across the continuum;
