About the Event

 17th Annual Training and Resource Day

 September 21, 2018


 Maia Szalavitz


Award-Winning Neuroscience Author, Journalist & Mental Health Advocate  


Maia Szalavitz is an award-winning author and journalist who covers addiction and neuroscience. Her latest book, the New York Times bestseller, Unbroken Brain: A Revolutionary New Way of Understanding Addiction uses her own story of recovery from heroin and cocaine addiction to explore how reframing addiction as a learning disorder can transform prevention, treatment and policy. It was published by St. Martin’s Books in April 2016, with paperback forthcoming in 2017.


Her work speaks to people with addiction, their family members, policy makers, concerned community members, politicians, treatment providers, physicians, social service agencies affected by addiction, university communities, criminal justice officials, and others who want to improve the way we prevent, treat and manage drug problems.




This is a free event, but advance registration is required. Lunch is included with the registration.


If you register and then cannot attend, please be courteous and notify us so someone else can.
