Substance Abuse Coalition of Kanabec County (SACK) Headed to CADCA’s Mid-Year Training Event in Atlanta, GA to Learn the Latest Strategies to Keep Youth Drug Free.
Mora, MN – SACK Coalition Coordinator, Patti Miller, is headed to Atlanta, Georgia, to join nearly 2,000 substance use prevention and treatment specialists from around the world for CADCA’s (Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America) 16th annual Mid-Year Training Institute.
The week-long training, held at the Marriott Marquis, will teach participants how to address one of our nation’s biggest public health challenges – drug use. CADCA’s Mid-Year Training Institute is a one-of-a-kind intensive training opportunity, offering more than 100 ninety-minute, half-day and full day courses geared towards helping participants find solutions to their community’s toughest substance use problems.
“The Mid-Year is a unique professional development opportunity for anyone trying to prevent and reduce drug use, and its related problems, in their community,” said Gen. Arthur T. Dean, CADCA’s Chairman and CEO. “After four days of intensive training, participants will return to their communities with new skills and strategies, and a clearer roadmap to create environments where young people can thrive.”
CADCA’s Mid-Year will cover a wide range of topics, such as how to prevent prescription drug abuse, create tobacco-free environments, reduce impaired driving and develop policies to reduce marijuana use. The coalition representatives will hear from several federal leaders, including Acting Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy Richard Baum, Acting Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration Chuck Rosenberg, and Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary at the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Kana Enomoto.
