Wednesday, October 30, 2013 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Together with Willingway Hospital, Georgia Southern University's Division of Continuing Education is pleased to offer the 20th Annual Addiction Update Conference, October 30th, 2013 at the Nessmith-Lane Conference Center on the campus of Georgia Southern University. Dr. John F. Kelly, Ph D, Associate Director of the Center for Addiction Medicine and Director of the Addiction Recovery Management Service at the Massachusetts General Hospital, and an assistant professor in psychiatry at Harvard Medical School states," Addiction is the United States' #1 Public Health Problem". It is a health crisis that is costing America $600 billion a year (in healthcare costs, crime, lost productivity, and more) and killing 320 people a day - more than any disease other than cancer and heart disease. Each year, millions of people suffer from substance use disorders, and countless more are affected by someone else's problem.

The 20th Annual Addiction Update Conference is a one-day program that will focus on the search for the cure, a designer drug update, adolescent treatment perspectives, cross cultural competencies in treatment and recovery for special population groups, addiction and recovery for the emerging adult/collegiate population and process addiction. This update is designed for the professionals in the addiction field, but is open to nurses, social workers, educators, law enforcement and students.
