PALM's prime thrust is education. Its main activity is sponsoring educational workshops on the issues of addiction. They are held monthly, and cover a wide range of related topics.
PALM educational workshops are designed to offer actual application of techniques in dealing with addiction. The workshops encourage extensive interaction between the presenter and the participants.
PALM's goal is to provide a forum for the exchange of useful information and to meet the professional needs of its participants.
