NY Statewide Leadership Training Institutes
ASAP is pleased to work with Join Together and NCADD to present a series of Statewide Leadership Training Institutes in NY. Through these trainings we hope to engage new grassroots leaders who will work to increase access to addiction prevention, treatment and recovery services through improved policies and legislation and through enhanced funding.
The consequences of untreated addiction are paid for by not only by the individuals struggling with addiction, but the burden also falls on society through costs incurred in the healthcare, child welfare and criminal justice systems. Now is the time to close the addiction treatment gap by seeking adequate funding for prevention, treatment and recovery support services and by improved legislation and public policies.
Invitation to Apply
You are cordially invited to apply to participate in a free one-day Leadership Training Institute. The Institute is for anyone who is concerned about alcohol and other drug addiction and wants to do more. A distinguished faculty of state and legislative officials, executives and experts will provide the information you need to enhance your advocacy skills so that you become empowered to make a difference! (*CE credits are available for those renewing their CASAC, CPP or CPS credential.)

At this training you will receive information about the importance of addiction services, the interplay of treatment services and drug courts as a means to widen access to treatment for those who are criminally involved and the importance of grassroots efforts in shaping legislation and policies which directly impact accessibility to treatment services and how services are paid for.
The Institutes will provide the latest information, strategies and skills so that participants feel comfortable and confident when advocating for funding or policies. The expectation for participants is that they will attend a one-day institute and participate in opportunities for grassroots work with local and state leaders in the future.
We hope you can join us for this exciting initiative and learn how to become an effective grassroots leader, and encourage others to join the cause!
