2019 Annual School on Addictions and Behavioral Health Call for Presenters

Anchorage, Alaska, 99501

The Regional Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor Training (RADACT) program is pleased to announce the 45th Annual School on Addictions and Behavioral Health: “Trauma Recovery Systems of Care: Treatment and Solutions”. Join us May 6 – 8, 2019 at the Sheraton Anchorage Hotel to recognize, understand and help resolve not only an individual’s addiction, but the trauma experienced by those in the family and community as a result of that addiction.

The 2019 Annual School on Addictions and Behavioral Health will bring together more than 400 professionals. Attendees will include counselors, social workers, educators, case workers, mental health clinicians, psychologists, primary care providers, peer support specialists, criminal justice workers, and volunteers from various organizations throughout Alaska. This year’s theme will focus on trauma – recovery, treatment, and solutions.

This year’s conference will categorize all its workshops according to Entry level, Intermediate level and Advanced level of training. Instructors will be challenged to design their presentation to meet the specific needs of these different levels of professionals. Also, to give participants greater opportunity to attend multiple workshops, all workshops will be limited to 1.5 hours or 3 hours. Workshops that need to be longer can be broken up into independent 1.5 hour or 3 hour workshops. Workshop focus will also need to be identified as being suitable for primary care providers, behavioral health providers, or both. The topics that are highlighted will be given priority.

The Annual School is the oldest behavioral health conference in the state of Alaska. Over the past four decades it has continued to evolve in order to effectively meet the training needs of behavioral health and ancillary professionals statewide. The conference provides a wonderful opportunity to network face-to-face with fellow professionals and colleagues from all over Alaska and the United States. We look forward to seeing you there.
