The 8th Blending Conference, which is hosted by the National Institute on Drug Abuse is being held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and it is a worthwhile investment for anyone working at a drug treatment center or if you're curious to know how science-based approaches work within prevention and drug abuse and addiction.
Sometimes there is a translational gap that forms when information is circulated, and this is a conference that allows practitioners to receive it directly. These science advances range from the latest findings on screening and brief intervention, co-occurring disorders, drug courts, and prescription opioid abuse to the Blending Team products which address motivational interviewing, buprenorphine, and motivational incentives.
Although the conference is sold out now, it is worth adding yourself to the wait list. The agenda for the conference can be see here.
