"As overdose increases in prevalence and leads as a cause of accidental death, and more individuals meet the criteria for an SUD diagnosis, the reliance on the ...12 Steps as an accepted standard in treatment facilities and programs should be reevaluated, as other promising treatment and recovery support models generate empirically validated outcomes and success in treating SUDs."

Today BUSSW joined Women’s March Youth EMPOWER by coordinating a walkout to protest Congress’ inaction & urge Congress to do more than tweet thoughts and prayers in response to the gun violence plaguing our communities. BUSSW students and faculty support students nationwide who say #ENOUGH.
NASW supports student walkouts across the nation in support of sensible gun laws and the end of gun violence and mass shootings. Please read our previous statement commending this youth movement: http://bit.ly/2HyRrXe
