The Kentucky School of Alcohol and Other Drug Studies (KSAODS) was traditionally an in-person event held annually in July. Each year, more than 1,200 Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio professionals from substance use treatment, mental health, harm reduction, prevention and other related fields gather to hear from national and state leaders on the up-and-coming theories of practice in the behavioral health world. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic forced us to put the in-person event on hold. But we are excited to be moving forward with our First Annual Kentucky School of Alcohol and Other Drug Studies Virtual Learning Series, launching September 2023 in coordination with National Recovery Month.
KSAODS Virtual Learning Series is an educational resource sponsored by the Kentucky Department for Behavioral Health, Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities. It offers a range of virtual programs and courses designed to equip individuals with the knowledge and skills necessary to provide evidence-based prevention, treatment, recovery supports, and harm reductions services. The series aims to address the complex issues surrounding substance use and contribute to the development of qualified professionals in the field.
The Virtual Learning Series kicks off September 13th and each month following there will be an option to attend one or two virtual trainings on various topics. All sessions are free to participants and provide free CEUs. You can register here for the series.
