Addiction Professionals Making a Difference
In August, hundreds of addiction professionals gathered in Savannah to attend courses, presentations and workshops at the 8th annual Georgia School of Addiction Studies. This year’s theme was Unleashing the Power: Prevention, Treatment and Recovery.
“This award is probably the most meaningful thing that has ever happened to me professionally.”
– Ari Russell, GUIDE executive director
Typically, people who are drawn to the field of addiction are devoted to helping others heal. While the rewards of the profession seldom involve fame, each year at the Georgia School of Addiction Studies, the efforts of outstanding substance abuse prevention, treatment and recovery professionals are celebrated by their peers.
