The New England School of Addiction and Prevention Studies, commonly called Summer School, is a four-day intensive experience for participants to further their knowledge, skills, and experience in the field of substance use disorder services through in-depth coursework.
Individuals may select topic specific tracks where similar topic courses have been grouped together or, if a participant would like to tailor their experiences even more, they may select specific courses from different focus areas. These focus areas have been designed to meet the needs of various audiences. Potential attendees will notice there is programming intended for many different partners in the world of substance use disorder prevention, treatment, intervention and recovery. Whether you are a new addiction counselor, a juvenile probation officer, a recovery coach, or a licensed clinician, you will find unique offerings within this year’s program. Over 80 courses are offered. D
The Summer School is appropriate for anyone who recognizes the impact of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs on individuals, families, and communities. Each year, participants from many disciplines come together to form a unique and diverse learning community.

Malden Overcoming Addition Press Release; http://malden.wickedlocal.com/news/20170424/20-complete-recovery-coach-academy-in-malden
In 2015, many of you gathered at the State House to draw attention to a lack of funding for addiction prevention, treatment, and recovery in the State Budget. You sported t-shirts with the number 321 on the front to represent the lives lost to overdoses in NH in 2014.
In 2017, I’m afraid to say that the fight is not over. In 2016, we lost 478 Granite Staters to overdoses. Convincing our legislators to use state liquor profits to fund necessary prevention, treatment, and recovery measures remains an uphill battle. Just this morning, the Division III Finance Committee in the House voted to suspend the statute that guarantees this crucial Alcohol Fund money is used to address substance use in New Hampshire.
On April 6th, 2017, New Futures advocates will once again be gathering at the New Hampshire State House to fight for a budget that fully funds the New Hampshire Alcohol Fund at 5%. Once again, we need your help to rally for the resources that people with substance use disorders need and deserve.
Please join us in rallying for the health and wellness of New Hampshire’s citizens. To sign up, click here: https://secure.everyaction.com/SdFZQQ9-xEGNg6iOU6p3qQ2. Encourage your friends and fellow advocates to do the same!
