The New England School of Addiction and Prevention Studies, commonly called Summer School, is a four-day intensive experience for participants to further their knowledge, skills, and experience in the field of addiction services through in-depth coursework. Individuals may select topic specific tracks where similar topic courses have been grouped together or, if a participant would like to tailor their experiences even more, they may select specific courses from different focus areas. These focus areas have been designed to meet the needs of various audiences. Potential attendees will notice there is programming intended for many different partners in the world of addiction prevention, treatment, intervention and recovery. Whether you are a new addiction counselor, a juvenile probation officer, or a licensed clinician, you will find unique offerings within this year’s program. Over 80 courses are offered.
The four-day program is a combination of major presentations and courses. Courses provide intensive, skill-based training in research-based programming for all students. The School’s target audience includes persons from all disciplines who are concerned with alcohol, tobacco and other drug related issues, persons new to the field, and persons in behavioral health and allied human services whose activities require a general knowledge of substance abuse.
