The Alaska Addiction Professionals Association is pleased to invite you to participate in the 37th Annual School on Addictions & Behavioral Health. Join us May 2-4, 2011 at the Shera- ton Anchorage Hotel for this Alaskan tradition as we explore the issues related to “Rx for Re- covery” Rx for Recovery reflects the many facets of a comprehensive system of care. Addiction and behavioral health professionals are tasked with helping to heal those who suffer from issues including addiction to alcohol and other drugs, severe emotional disturbances, Alzheimer’s and dementia, and developmental challenges. Prescription drug abuse has come to the fore- front as an issue affecting Alaskans, young and old alike. Likewise, those who suffer from mental health issues are seeking a variety of paths to wellness. Rx for Recovery speaks to a broad cross section of providers. Alaska is continuing to experience changes in prevention, treatment, and sustaining recovery in the field of behavioral health. It is our responsibility to promote best practices, accessible treatment, and adequate staffing through workforce development to provide optimum services to all Alaskans seeking recovery. “Rx for Recovery” will showcase conference activities sup- porting individual professional growth and improvements in the field. This year the Annual School is excited to focus on “Rx for Recovery” highlighting the diverse paths to recovery, need for collaboration, partnerships, ever-emerging science, and the professional growth of our workforce.
