WORCESTER, Mass., July 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AdCare Educational Institute and the New England Institute of Addiction

Studies have merged bringing more high quality training to addiction professionals and the community. 

"This merger will broaden AdCare Educational Institute's reach and allow more opportunities to partner with other organizations and state agencies throughout New England," said James Gorske, Executive Director, AdCare Educational Institute. 

AdCare Educational Institute, Inc. is a non-profit corporation, 501 (c) 3, established in 1986 with the mission to advance the awareness, knowledge and skills about the prevention, intervention and treatment of substance abuse and other public health issues.  The mission is accomplished through the development of educational activities such as conferences, seminars, in-service training and workforce development activities.  The Institute is one of the largest training entities in New England.

"AdCare Educational Institute's mission is vital to our communities, especially now as we are in the midst of the current opioid epidemic," added Patrice Muchowski, Sc.D. , President of AdCare Educational Institute.  "The current opioid epidemic has increased the need for additional programming, unfortunately staffing has not kept up with the increased need," she added.

Established in 1969 as a private, non-profit organization by the State Alcohol and Drug Agency Directors of the New England states, the New England Institute of Addiction Studies (NEIAS) has 48 years of experience providing training to individuals committed to preventing, treating, and supporting recovery from addictive disorders.

"The New England Institute of Addiction Studies is pleased to have merged with our longtime organizational partner, the AdCare Educational Institute, and looks forward to continuing to bring our quality summer schools and other workforce development programs to professionals throughout New England," said Denise Adams, Director.      

The new Program will be called AdCare Educational Institute of New England and will continue to offer the premier events of the NEIAS including:  The New England School of Addiction and Prevention Studies, held each year in June and scheduled at Worcester State University, Worcester, MA for June 2018, and the New England School of Best Practices in Addiction Treatment which will be held at Waterville Valley, NH on August 28 - August 31, 2017.  The Best Practices conference combines in-depth study with the opportunity to learn in a gorgeous setting in the heart of the White Mountains.

"AdCare Educational Institute will continue to offer these events in additional to the numerous other state based and supported training activities currently provided," said James Gorske, Executive Director, AdCare Educational Institute.
