Mark your calendars to attend the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) 16th Annual Prevention Day!

This exciting one-day event will convene on Monday, February 3, 2020, in conjunction with CADCA’s 30th National Leadership Forum at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in Oxon Hill, MD.

As it provides a forum for the communication and networking between prevention practitioners, community leaders, researchers, and consumers in the behavioral health field, Prevention Day will feature SAMHSA’s leadership to inform on SAMHSA’s prevention priorities for the coming year.  Other dynamic speakers will be featured to discuss evidence-based preventive interventions and findings from the latest developments in the areas of substance abuse prevention, treatment, recovery, and mental illness.

During our 30th Annual National Leadership Forum, we encourage you to tell members of your congressional delegation and/or their key staffers about your coalition and what it’s accomplishing during Capitol Hill Day on Wednesday, February 5. This event provides Forum 2020 participants from across the country an opportunity to educate policymakers in Congress about the importance of substance use and misuse prevention.
