About The Conference

The Premier School for Addiction Professionals in the Southeastern United States

The Board of Directors and staff of NCFADS are pleased to offer the 2021 Winter School in a totally virtual format. Participants will be able to earn up to 29.5 hours, dependent upon attendance.  The sessions will include many of the required types of content for credentialing, such as HIV, ethics, clinical supervision, and five of the seven subspecialty credits that NCASPPB requires. We will offer our usual types of professional credits as well. And, participants will be able to register for the entire School, Monday-Wednesday only, or single day registration!

Winter School utilizes a conference platform that allows attendees to connect with presenters, network with other participants, participate in interactive polling that provides real time results, and watch each presentation live.

The School opens Sunday, February 21st at 1:00pm and concludes Wednesday, February 24th at 3:30pm. 

All sessions are consecutive, following one after the other, with breaks provided.

Clinical supervision registrants must attend all three sessions for credit to be awarded.

Winter School Objectives:

Upon completion of the conference, participants should increase their ability to effectively care for clients and be able to:

  • Discuss several Substance Use Disorder (SUD) matters specific to North Carolina
  • Identify population specific interventions and modalities with appropriate clients
  • Examine techniques and concepts to employ with SUD clients and families;

…as well as implement these skills in their daily practice.

Flexible School Packages

Flexible Options to Meet Your Unique Virtual Schedule

We understand the pressures of being a professional in the field, and furthermore recognize the struggles of acquiring much needed continuing education while operating a private practice. We offer seven flexible school packages for your convenience.

Connect. Network. Engage.

Unique Opportunities to Meet Professionals from All Over the Globe

Networking is critical in today’s fast-paced and tech-centric world.  There is no better way to form long-lasting and worthwhile connections like peer-to-peer networking.
