"Lessons from the Substance Use Disorder Field:
Identifying and Responding to Teens in Crisis"

 

Carol Morrison LCSW, CASAC

Director, New Directions Alcohol and
Substance Abuse Treatment Program, Brooklyn, NY

strategies to educate patients about the dangers of synthetic drugs.

 

 

We are looking forward to seeing everyone. Invite someone.

Be sure to mark your calendars for the 50th Annual Addiction Institute. Yes, 50 years of cutting-edge, science-based interventions and clinical practice focused on improving the well-being of individuals and families that we serve. Join us at Fordham University - Lincoln Center Campus on June 13, 2018. Submit a workshop proposal for the 50th Annual Addiction Institute with the following link: http://www.naswnyc.org/?217

 

Also, we would like to bring to your attention the Chapter's Call to Action. Assembly Member Luis Sepulveda has introduced the Racial Equity Bill (AB 5851) that proposes the addition of a Racial Equity Impact Assessment (REIA) Committee to evaluate the potential harm and ensure fiscal and environmental protections in the face of limited resources. This assessment can be a vital tool for preventing institutional racism and for identifying new options to remedy long-standing inequities.

 

We call upon you to contact your Assembly Member to support establishing this Legislative Committee. When you do remember to introduce yourself as a constituent, reference bill AB.5851, and its intent. Finally, don't forget to ask your member to join as a co-sponsor of the legislation immediately!

Best,

Sharon and Susan

Addictions Committee Co-Chairs.
