Adolescent Treatment - Update on Two National Conferences

Normally at this time of year, we at the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) are busily preparing for the Joint Meeting on Adolescent Treatment Effectiveness (JMATE) – a national conference on teen substance abuse treatment. This would have been our 5th year for the conference, which has steadily grown in size and scope. Unfortunately, we’re not going to be able to hold the meeting this year, for reasons beyond our control. We do expect, however, to be able to have the meeting again in 2010. 
For those of you who may not be familiar with JMATE, you can still view the website from last year, where many of the presentations can be downloaded for your use. There are also links to the earlier meetings and their presentations.

On a positive note, the College on Problems of Drug Dependence (CPDD), is holding its 71st annual meeting in Reno/Sparks, NV from June 20 – 25. The oldest organization in the US focused on drug dependence research, CPDD serves both researchers and policymakers with updates on recent research.
On June 20th, CSAT will host a satellite session during CPDD. Because CSAT remains remains deeply committed to serving youth and their families, Dr. H. Westley Clark, CSAT’s Director, has determined that the satellite session will focus entirely on adolescent treatment, and include representation on the agenda of youth and families. 
I am personally looking forward to promoting the latest in treatment advances at CPDD, and to the resumption of JMATE in 2010.
