I was recently asked to have a reproduction of my charcoal drawing “Drowning” be displayed at an upcoming Center for Substance Abuse Treatment conference. This federal agency awards grants that address substance abuse and mental health issues, and shares the results of these efforts through a variety of conferences. This particular conference will focus on how addiction affects adolescents, young adults and their families.
This particular conference will focus on how addiction affects adolescents, young adults and their families. CSAT will have a small addiction art gallery consisting of 14 works of art from the Addiction and Art book as part of their annual grantees meeting on Adolescent Treatment Effectiveness next month in Baltimore (December 14-16, 2010 at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel). By invitation only, a wide range of partners (treatment providers, families, youth, community leaders, researchers and policymakers) will come together to discuss the latest advances in adolescent drug treatments, with a particular emphasis on the unique perspective of youth and their families. The 3-day meeting will draw about 750 participants.
