VIRTUAL CONFERENCE: 55th New England School of Addiction and Prevention Studies


The New England School of Addiction and Prevention Studies, commonly called Summer School, is an intensive 4-day learning experience to further knowledge, skills, and experience in the field of substance use disorder services. For over 55 years, participants from many disciplines have come together to form a unique, diverse learning community.
This year will be our second hybrid year, with options to attend the program in person in Worcester or to attend the program virtually!

We are delighted to return to Worcester State University for a face-to-face program.

Due to the continued strong demand for intensive Summer School programming online, we are happy to also offer a live virtual program.

  • Select from many intensive courses from across the continuum of treatment, prevention, and recovery.
  • Virtual courses will take place live by videoconference, allowing for course group work and interaction.
  • In addition to courses: plenary sessions, community, and more!
  • Options are available to attend the full program, or any number of days.
  • Earn 26 Contact Hours during the week.


Courses are designed for the extensive demands of today's professionals and organizations:

  • Certification, licensing, and re-credentialing;
  • Evidence-based practices;
  • Addressing health disparities and equity issues;
  • Behavioral healthcare and primary care integration;
  • Recovery oriented care across the continuum;
  • Addressing the opioid crisis, stimulants, and other current drug trends;
  • And many other current and emerging topics!


Partial New England State Scholarships are available from most New England states. Application coming soon!


Complete course information, registration, and scholarship information will be posted to this website in March. Click here to sign up for the Email List.
