We believe it is so important for us all to pull together and strengthen our support of one another through unity and the basis of who we are, Addiction Professionals reaching out to hurting individuals, loved ones and family members impacted by addiction.  

MAAP will offer education this year on a wide range of topics presented by outstanding Professionals.  Some of the topics will include Relapse Prevention, Group Therapy Techniques, Outdoor Experiential Therapy, Dual Diagnosis, and Family Therapy which will include a mock therapy session demonstration.   A new addition this year will be a panel of Addiction Professionals that will have a Q and A time. The purpose of the panel will give the participants the opportunity to ask questions concerning counseling challenges in their practice.   There will be approximately 20+ CE’s available. 

As always we will have a continental breakfast each day along with snacks during the breaks. Lunch will be provided on Wednesday and Thursday.  Wednesday evening directly after to last   session, we will have BBQ and Blues appreciation dinner with live music from “The Lucky Hand Blues Band” and some outstanding Southern BBQ.  Bring your dancing shoes and allow MAAP to show each of you how appreciative we are to have you as a part of our organization.
