Registration Now Open for the 42nd Annual
Kentucky School of Alcohol and Other Drug Studies 2015

Kentucky’s 42nd annual Kentucky School of Alcohol and Other Drug Studies (KSAODS) will be held August 16-20, 2015, at the Crowne Plaza Airport Hotel, Louisville, Kentucky.

Each year, as many as 600 Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio professionals from the alcohol and drug treatment, mental health, prevention and other related fields gather to hear from national and state leaders on the up-and-coming theories of practice in the behavioral health world.

This year’s event features 70 workshops and 48 presenters, including several national speakers offering insight on current topics in the field.  You can find a copy of the 2015 KY School Brochure here.  Look to the menu bar on the right side of web page.
Once you are ready to register for workshops, go here.
KSAODS begins on Sunday afternoon with a participant check-in period, followed by an opening plenary session. Day-long workshops begin Monday morning after an opening plenary session, and KSAODS will follow that format each day through Wednesday. In order to allow two, three-hour session offerings on Thursday, there will not be a plenary.

Certificates of Attendance and CEUs will be available for a variety of professional licensure boards. A limited number of scholarships are available for Kentucky residents and applications will be accepted until June 30th. Apply for a scholarship here:
The cost of attendance is $450 for the entire week or $125 for a single day’s registration. The cost of daily lunch and the Tuesday Evening Appreciation Banquet with Awards Ceremony are included in the weekly registration fee.
Nominations for the Robert Straus Awards may be submitted online here and will be accepted through June 30th. 

The individual who nominates the award winner in each of the four categories will receive a three-day scholarship for Kentucky School 2015.
Deadline for hotel reservations, at the conference rate, is July 15th.  For reservations, go to here
We look forward to seeing you in August!!
