UAB Substance Abuse Programs and the Southern Coast Addiction Technology Transfer Center (SCATTC) are hosting a Training of Trainers workshop Aug. 19-20 at the Innovation Depot.

The conference’s focus is on Substance Abuse Treatment for Persons with Co-Occurring Disorders, especially substance abuse and mental health disorders.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Organization are sending master trainers John Challis and Mary McCarty-Arias from the Co-Occurring Center of Excellence in Washington, D.C., to facilitate the event.

This training of trainers is designed for delivery by clinical supervisors who will in turn deliver the training within their treatment organizations.
