Carol Lawyer, with Intervention First, and I had a great time last week presenting “So You Want to be a Interventionist?” at the National Conference on Addictive Disorders (NCAD) in Washington DC.
It was exciting to have a large collaborative effort between NAADAC, NAATP, INCASE, and NALGAP who also joined forces with Addiction Professional and Behavioral Healthcare magazine which brought together the first national conference on addiction disorders. Large collaborations in our field are not the norm but hopefully they will become so. I was able to see many old friends and make new ones that I hope will assist me in being a better professional and also help New Directions for Women in being a better service provider.
I look forward to staying in touch with everyone through the years and also seeing everyone next year in San Diego!
