Learning Objectives for this course include:

What is the CART Collabrative?  CART Collborative sites are sites that have been vetted by CCAR's Center for Addiction Recovery Training (CART) as providing the same exceptional training programs many have traveled to Connecticut to receive.  The trainers and location have been approved by CART and will maintain the excellance and fidelity thousands have come to know and trust from our training programs.
