After three years of virtual awards, PreventEd’s Spring Awards Luncheon returns in-person! Join us on April 28 to celebrate the people making a difference in the field of substance use in our community. The Spring Awards Luncheon has been an annual event since 1975, ten years after the agency came to be. The event is held each April, which is the annual Alcohol and Drug Awareness month.

This luncheon is an opportunity for substance use and other professionals to come together, network, and honor a few of its own. This is important because so many who toil in this field remain unsung heroes who pour their heart and soul into the work they do with little compensation or recognition. This year, the awards we’ll be giving are:

  • Service Award: for remarkable and selfless efforts in addressing substance use in the community.
  • Champion Award: for uncommon leadership in advocating for substance use prevention education.
  • Gateway Award: for exemplary work in raising the public’s awareness of alcohol and other drug issues.
  • Volunteer Award: for time, resources, and contributions dedicated to reducing and preventing the harms of alcohol and other drugs.
  • Helen B: Madden: for an exceptional career devoted to the treatment of substance use disorders.
  • Tasch-Kopolow Scholarship: for commitment to achieving excellence in a professional career serving the substance use field.

Stay tuned for award recipients. Do you know someone who deserves recognition for their commitment and contributions to the field of substance use? Nominate them for the 2023 Helen B. Madden Award here. Nominations are due by March 15.
