This five-day late summer event gives addiction and behavioral health professionals the opportunity for in-depth study of areas of special interest. The program includes advanced clinical and administrative skilled-based treatment in best practices and evidence-based practices treatment approaches, advanced prevention offerings, as well as current and emerging topics, and clinical supervision.

Partial New England State Scholarships are available from most New England states. 


Designed with the seasoned behavioral health professional in mind, the New England Best Practices School focuses heavily on evidence-based and promising approaches specific to addressing addiction. 

The courses offered are intended to appeal to a  wide array of professionals working in diverse settings. In addition to clinical, clinical supervision, and advanced prevention topics, some course offerings this year will again address the macro area of addiction and behavioral practice such as program or agency oversight. Courses will be offered in the following areas: clinical supervision foundations, clinical supervision recertification coursework, ethics, coursework for established clinicians, and, for the third year, a new advanced prevention track.
