MAIIADS: Minnesota American Indian Institute on Alcohol and Drug Studies Conference

Minnesota American Indian Institute on Alcohol and Drug Studies Conference (MAIIADS)

The mission for the annual MAIIADS conference is: “To provide education on alcohol and drug abuse that addresses the total well-being of the American Indian individual, family, and community that is sensitive to cultural healing traditions.” The Institute is a time for professionals from American Indian communities to come together and enhance their knowledge about chemical abuse, to discuss ways to approach the healing of their communities, to learn new techniques, and most importantly, to continue their own healing processes.
