MHLP Professor Receives "Partnership Award"

Roger Peters, PhD, will receive the "Partnership Award" at the National TASC conference held in St. Petersburg on May 4-6, 2015. TASC (Treatment Alternatives for Safer Communities) provides assessment, triage, and treatment services for drug-involved offenders throughout the U.S. The award recognizes individuals on a state or national basis who have made an outstanding contribution to the work of TASC, with the understanding that TASC cannot work effectively in their communities, states and nationally without partners who are invested in the mission of TASC. Dr. Peters was selected for the award by the Executive Committee of the National TASC Board. Past recipients of the Partnership Award include Kenneth Robertson (CSAT/SAMHSA), Dr. Redonna Chandler (NIDA), Robert Morrison, Executive Director of the National Association of State Drug and Alcohol Abuse Directors, Dr. Harry Wexler (NDRI), and Deputy Director Michael Botticelli of the Office of National Drug Control Policy.
