The Rural Providers’ Conference (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.
The next Rural Providers’ Conference will be co-hosted by Kawerak and RurAL CAP and will be held in Nome, Alaska on August 2-5, 2016! Find all of the conference information at https://2016kawerak-rpc.eventbrite.com.
