The training, presented by Dr. Raymond Anderson of the University of Arizona, will be on April 26, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at the Prescott Resort, Arizona Room, 1500 E. Highway 69, Prescott.

MATForce is Yavapai County's substance abuse coalition.
CRAFT is a proven successful strategy used by therapists and by families to encourage individuals to enter addiction treatment and to provide help for families with the day-to-day issues of substance abusers. It is a non-confrontational method resulting in positive outcomes for the person with the substance abuse disorder as well as the entire family. CRAFT methods are effective and easy to learn.
