Upcoming Audio Conference: Substance Abuse Treatment Models for Homeless People
On January 10, 2008 at 3:00 pm ET, the Alliance will host "Substance Abuse Treatment Models for Homeless People," an installment of the Leadership to End Homelessness Audio Conference Series. This audio conference will highlight two substance use treatment programs. James Alexander, with The Engagement Center at Maryhaven, will explain the treatment and outreach efforts they use to provide quick, immediate treatment for homeless public inebriates in Columbus, Ohio. Cynthia Crone, with the University of Arkansas for Medicaid Sciences, College of Medicine, will discuss how they treat families with a member who has an addiction disorder. Hear the differences and common themes among these two very different programs and how each approaches the treatment aspect of serving their clients.
