The Rural Alaska Community Action Program, Inc. (RurAL CAP) announces the 30th Annual Rural Providers’ Conference (RPC) will be held June 10 to June 14, 2013 in Fairbanks. RurAL CAP and the Tanana Chiefs Conference (TCC) will co-sponsor the RPC in 2013 and 2014. The RPC was previously held in Fairbanks in 1999 and 2000.
The RPC is an annual gathering designed by rural Alaskans who are substance abuse service providers, youth, Elders and family members interested in celebrating and encouraging the continual growth of the Alaska Native Sobriety Movement. The RPC embraces and unites traditional Alaska Native knowledge and modern treatment and prevention methods to find solutions for alcohol and drug abuse. The conference features ceremonies, talking circles and cultural events. Workshops and general sessions are geared toward clinicians working with rural Alaskans, those in recovery, as well as Elders, youth, and other adults.
