Call for Proposals
Courses at CAS will continue to focus exclusively on recertification. Potential offerings can include any topics that will support the work of those in the addiction, behavioral health and health education fields. As always, we will strive to create a series that appeals to all levels of individuals on the front line of addiction and behavioral health practice, particularly the advanced practitioner. We are particularly interested in topics that reflect current trends and best practices. We will also consider past offerings that continue to reflect the best of current practice. In addition to our offerings for clinicians we are expanding our department to include continuing education for Certified Peer Recovery Specialists.
