“Tackling Addiction Trends”
This year’s theme will bring conference-goers up to date on addiction topics that are rapidly changing–locally, regionally and nationally–including impacts of new marijuana and gambling laws, and the rise of vaping, and will leave with effective interventions in their tool belts.
