Description

Meeting the challenges of our nation’s addiction crisis can only be accomplished with a workforce that is trained, educated, and equipped to tackle the complex task at hand. Investing in the addiction workforce is of paramount importance. In this webinar, we will identify existing resources and programs that support the workforce. We will also discuss the power of our collective voice to advocate for policies and funding that aim to bolster the profession and help meet the critical demand for treatment and recovery services across our country.

  • Identify resources to incentivize recruitment and retention of the addiction workforce.
