Praxis trainings address the most pressing needs in our communities with innovative, evidence-based techniques and the latest research from the field. We will modify trainings to focus on specific content or populations upon request. Contact Praxis to discuss your training needs or request a training.

Praxis trainings are eligible for continuing education credits (CEs/CEUs) from the following accrediting organizations:

• NAADAC—The Association for Addiction Professionals

Contact your accrediting organization to ensure these credits can be used towards certification/licensing requirements.

Training of Trainers 2019

Our upcoming “Training of Trainers” will focus on how to train communities and programs on opioid overdose prevention and connect them to pharmacies. Participants will be given the information and tools necessary to become trainers on opioid overdose prevention within their community. We expect that trainers make a commitment to conduct at least one training within six weeks of the training, participate in future learning activities with their cohort, help trainers remain current in their knowledge, and continue to polish their training skills.

Please note the following:

  1. Priority for registration will be given to BSAS funded treatment providers, non-profits, and community organizations.
  2. No Narcan will be provided after the training.
