What is a Continuing Education Event?
At Advanced Recovery Systems (ARS), we offer a series of continuing education opportunities in our local communities and online, led by qualified doctors and clinicians in the field. These presentations are geared toward sharing the latest trends, advancements and treatment protocols in the fields of substance abuse, addiction, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), eating disorders and other co-occurring mental health issues.
Join the ARS continuing education Facebook group to be notified of upcoming opportunities and if you’re interested in being a contributor, please contact our Marketing and Event Specialist, Ashley Ulbrich, at [email protected].
