(Springfield, IL) – August 31, 2011. The Cebrin Goodman Center, an affiliate of the Lillian and Larry Goodman Foundations, granted 30 conference scholarships to prevention and treatment professionals throughout Illinois for the 2011 Illinois Alcoholism Drug Dependence Association (IADDA) conference.
Scholarships were awarded to addiction prevention and treatment professionals with preference given to prevention providers, geographic diversity, and financial need.
“We are grateful to the Cebrin Goodman Center for their generous support of the 2011 IADDA Annual Conference,” said IADDA CEO Sara Moscato Howe. “Information gained from the conference workshops will directly benefit those who provide prevention and treatment services to Illinois’ most vulnerable populations, particularly youth.”
Scholarships cover full conference registration and hotel accommodations at the Hilton Lisle/Naperville.
Established in 2007, the Cebrin Goodman Center, located in Skokie, Illinois, is committed to helping young people fulfill their potential as happy, healthy contributing members of society. The often tragic consequences of drug use, abuse, and addiction are a powerful threat to the realization of that goal, according to the Center.
Effective prevention efforts are crucial if we hope to shield future generations from the false promises of the drug experience and the unfortunate paths far too many have chosen. The Cebrin Goodman Center supports ongoing partnerships with organizations whose expertise, vision, and passion uniquely position them to help young people develop the strengths to resist the formidable lure of drugs.
The IADDA conference, Designing the Future is scheduled for September 7–9 at the Hilton Lisle/Naperville.
