10th annual Susan Li Conference

Cultivating a Community of Recovery

Recovery from addiction continues beyond treatment. Learn best practices from medical professionals, researchers and policy advocates that support a culture of recovery in our communities.

This year’s Susan Li conference will be held in the Fairbanks Recovery Center on July 13 and 14, 2017. Attendees will receive 12 CEUs from the Indiana Professional Licensing agency (IPLA) and the National Association of Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors (NAADAC). The 2017 Susan Li Conference fee is $150 per person for two full days or $90 for one day (early bird before June 30 is $125 for two days and $75 for one day). Exhibit booth space is available for $250. The cost of the booth includes one registration to the conference.

Additional topics include: neonatal abstinence, intervention, prevention, medication-assisted treatment, family therapy, ethics in the digital age, trauma and how to help difficult-to-reach adolescents.

This conference honors Susan N. Li, a licensed clinical social worker and mental health therapist with over 35 years of clinical and administrative experience in mental health and substance abuse disorders. Li was recognized for her many contributions to these fields at the 2008 Susan Li Conference luncheon. The Susan Li Conference is made possible by donations to Fairbanks in honor of Li’s continuing contributions to the field of addiction.
