  • Evidence-Based Addiction Treatment: A Two-Day Workshop with Dr. William Miller

    April 27-28, 2017

    This workshop will provide helping professionals with an up-to-date research-based perspective on the treatment of substance use disorders, based on 40 years of research in addiction treatment outcomes – some of them surprising.  The workshop is based on the textbook Treating Addiction: A guide for professionals by Miller, Forcehimes and Zweben – a book that Dr. Miller says is “everything I wish I had known when I started out in the addiction field”.  Dr. Miller points out that scientific research findings often don’t make their way to the clinicians who are actually providing addiction treatment, so the textbook and this workshop are an attempt to bridge this gap.
