Summer School of Addiction Studies
The Center of Alcohol Studies founded the first Summer School of Alcohol Studies (SSAS) at Yale University in 1943. The School was the focus of several important forces that shaped the alcohol field as it is today. For example, the National Committee on Alcoholism was founded at the SSAS in 1944. The North Conway Institute, as well as other organizations, was also founded at the SSAS. Today, the Education & Training Division continues to provide leadership with the Summer School of Addiction Studies (SSAS).
