Webinar: Shaping policy and practice through advocacy

As codified in the NAADAC/NCC AP Code of Ethics, addiction professionals are called to advocate on behalf of clients at the individual, group, institutional, and societal levels. In this presentation, we will examine the central policy discussions surrounding the addiction profession in Washington, DC. We will also explore the critical role advocacy plays in shaping the delivery of treatment and recovery services. Finally, we will look forward to the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for the addiction profession in Congress and across the federal agencies.
