Offering a variety of courses on best practices in the field of substance use services across the continuum of care, the school’s nationally and regionally recognized faculty includes instructors who are respected for their accomplishments in the behavioral health field, and their training expertise.

A Note about the 2020 New England School of Addiction and Prevention Studies Program

For 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. For the 51st year, our planning committee had once again developed a wonderful program, built to meet the needs of the New England treatment, prevention, and recovery workforce and allied social service and healthcare professionals. As the coronavirus (COVID-19) impacts New England and the world, it has become increasingly apparent that we cannot safely gather in person during the week of June 1 – 4, as planned. We understand that many attendees each year plan on the Summer School for their professional development, and many depend on the large number of contact hours offered for their credentialing. We are pleased to offer this Virtual “Re-Imagined” New England School of Addiction and Prevention Studies.
