The NASW-NYC Addictions Committee presents an Addictions Institute focusing on creating new, innovative approaches to the difficulties faced by the social work profession-- grounded in scientific knowledge and is highly qualified to analyze and intervene to help society make substantial, measurable progress in the future.  


Questions to Address at the Institute:

At the 50th Annual Addictions Institute, we will consider how social workers might employ empirically informed interventions to respond to the underlying devastating impact of substance use disorders has on the communities we work in.

This call for proposals is seeking from all relevant fields of practice with an intersectionality lens to include substance use disorders. This year, the focus is on research and evidenced based practices highlighting the unique role of the social worker at the micro, mezzo, and macro level.

For clinical presentations, a LCSW is required.
