Substance use treatment is complex on many levels, from the unique nuances of each individual we treat to the intricacies of treatment and the elaborate challenges posed by consultation and participation in other systems and agencies.  Leaders in the field will discuss how new models of understanding and treating substance misuse recognize these complexities.  Through dynamic presentations and demonstrations, presenters will show how they navigate this therapeutic terrain.
