It is with a heavy heart that The SASSI Institute reports the passing of a dear friend and colleague, Mr. Stan DeKemper. Stan was not only a friend to the Recovery Field but also a personal and close friend of mine. Stan was the Executive Director of Indiana Credentialing Association on Alcohol and Drug Abuse (ICAADA). Our prayers and condolences go out to his family.
Rest in Peace, old friend!

We are excited to bring you a new stream of information through our website. Previously we sent colleagues in the field our Newsletter through email or hard copy. With this new format, you can expect greater variety and a more frequent stream of information. We will still include sample interpretations, instrument updates, and ongoing research projects, but also look for engaging video content and periodic guest columns covering a range of topics.
