I had the opportunity to present at the New England School of Best Practices in Addiction Treatment last week. Put on by the New England Institute of Addiction Studies, the four-day conference was held in beautiful Waterville Valley, NH. I believe I was the only non-clinical presenter there. I presented on social media basics Wednesday evening and then taught a full-day class on Thursday that focused on how those in the substance abuse treatment and recovery field could utilize social networking in their work.
Many of those in the addiction treatment field are still new to social media, and they have many things to consider when choosing a social media platform, particularly when it comes to setting boundaries and maintaining confidentiality. Overall, I think the class went well. We had some good discussion around having a social media strategy, monitoring interactions and putting a good social media policy in place. Below, you’ll find my PowerPoint presentation. I’d love to hear what you think about it.
