“This conference has always been first rate and offers the opportunity to meet and network with a variety of clinicians, researchers, policy makers and government officials involved in substance abuse treatment. Inasmuch as opioid misuse continues to be of great concern, it is an excellent place for those outside this particular specialty to acquaint themselves with state of the art research and effective interventions for problems such as prescription drug abuse. Many of the conference topics (spirituality, community relationships, recovery oriented systems of care, peer mentoring, stigma) have applicability beyond opioid addiction. The sizeable international contingent offers a thought provoking perspective on treatment in the US . The Awards Banquet is always an inspiring reminder of the impact of the work that we do.”
