We must be united in the war against addiction! My mission is to unite organizations,support groups, and everyone else who needs a helping hand. I am here to educate equip and develop a Recovery resource Network. My hope is that everyone gets the help they need and no one is left behind or alone in their fight for freedom from addiction. Join me and lets fight the good fight! Our Philosophy: Instigate, Agitate, Educate, and Liberate!
Development of the 2019 NAADAC Webinar Series is underway, and we invite you to collaborate with us! The Webinar Series is wildly successful, with over 130,000 professionals trained so far.
If you are a subject-matter expert on a topic relevant to addiction professionals, we encourage you to complete the online Call for Webinar Presentations for a chance to present on a nationally-broadcasted webinar.
This webinar will review the current status of federal discretionary programs that support substance use disorder treatment, prevention and recovery. The presentation will place an emphasis on programs within the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). However, funding initiatives at other key agencies, including the Department of Justice, will be reviewed.
The Substance Use Disorder Workforce Loan Repayment Act of 2018 (H.R. 5102) Passed the U.S. House of Representatives
Because of YOUR activism and YOUR support, the Substance Use Disorder Workforce Loan Repayment Act of 2018 (H.R. 5102) passed the U.S. House of Representatives last week! Thank you for your calls, emails, and messages to your Congressmen and Congresswomen. Your activism and efforts to support the addiction workforce are appreciated!
The Substance Use Disorder Workforce Loan Repayment Act provides up to $250,000 toward student loan repayment for those who work as substance use disorder treatment professionals in areas of need.
The bill is expected to go before the Senate later this summer, but it is never too early to begin contacting your Senators to express your support. We need your continued voice and your continued activism to make this bill become a law!
