Fall Classic - What a Line-Up!!
No, we are not talking about a sporting event - but the agenda for the
2016 National Alliance for Drug Endangered Children 13th Annual Conference taking place in Reno, Nevada, October 25-27, 2016. Over three short days, you can hear fascinating presentations and participate in intriguing discussions. Where else can you learn about such a range of topics in such a short time? Take a look at just a few of the topics that we have lined up:
current drug trends from an experienced law enforcement officer currently dealing with drugs and crime in the field every day?
connection between human trafficking and drug endangered children from a statewide prosecutor who handles human trafficking cases?
Or a revealing
inside look at a marijuana dispensary by a guy who takes excellent pictures?
How about hearing from a former law enforcement officer who helped start the DEC movement as she
dissects a DEC case that could have been handled differently?
Or the particular challenges for
women dealing with addiction - what can we learn from a nurse practitioner with 25 years of experience helping women in treatment and recovery?
How about learning about
how to help traumatized children learn and succeed from a program developed by law enforcement, prosecutors, and Harvard law school?
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)
and the services that could help children and families?
And one more - what about hearing about resiliency by understanding how one person dealt with her
life as a drug endangered child
and went on to create a program to help others - with a little help from our four-legged equine friends?
For more information on our exciting agenda and to get more information about the conference, please check out our conference website at
. We will be releasing more details every day!
We're all busy professionals and we know attending conferences takes time and incurs some expense. We also know that the hundreds of professionals who come together for National DEC's Annual Conference each year are glad they came - it is worth the time and the effort.
We would love to see you at National DEC's 13
One more thing - Please share this email with your colleagues, family, and friends. Reno is a great place to hang out in October and together we can make a difference in the lives of drug endangered children and their families.
