March 18 (10-11 am Mountain)
With the tragic overdose of renowned actor, Philip Seymour Hoffman, many people will turn to libraries with renewed interest in the study and treatment of the disease of addiction. Join us for a remarkable webcast from with two of the most important publishers producing ground-breaking work on this subject and what it means for collection development. Questions such as what titles should be on the shelves? How does Obamacare and the Parity Act of 2008 affect access to treatment? What is the latest thinking on the causes of addiction? How does addiction affect families and what sort of books are required reading for research. On hand will be Patrick Hughes from Central Recovery Press and Alison Vandenberg of Hazelden.
