The nation's finest federal and state officials and community leaders will join together to find solutions to the nation’s substance abuse problems. The event will showcase more than 80 training courses, with the goal of helping participants develop effective methods for addressing drug-related issues in their communities.

Teenage marijuana use and underage drinking will be a major focus point at the forum. Preventing prescription drug abuse, as in years passed, will also be at the forefront of concerns that will be addressed.
