"Treatment and Recovery: Research to Practice"


This webcast aims to inspire the creative community to write stories with authentic characters in situations that address an individual or family’s search for effective and appropriate treatment and recovery services. The webcast will center on the common denominators and age specific factors that are critical when looking for treatment and recovery services to achieve the best outcome. Using SAMHSA’s best practice findings, the panel will address key elements the writers should consider when staging a treatment-related program or in script about an individual or family members seeking help.
