Finding the time and funds to attend conferences or to earn continuing education contact hours isn't always possible. ""The Hazelden Clinical Innovators Series"" makes it easier for you.By the year 2020, SAMHSA expects over a 60 per cent increase in people aged 50 and over needing substance abuse treatment. Compared to adults whose drug use began in the 1960s, this future audience faces an increased risk of comorbid diseases and mental health consequences. Perhaps the nation's leading authorities on this client population, Frederic Blow and David Oslin present evidence-based strategies found in SAMHSA's promising practices. This program is essential for treatment centers, nursing homes, and community service centers.
