Calling for Presentations…

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I am writing on behalf of the AATOD Workshop Committee to inform you that we are now accepting proposals for workshop and poster presentations for the 2019 AATOD Conference. The conference is being held in sunny Florida, October 19-23, 2019, at the Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort.
The opioid epidemic continues to ravage the country and much of the world. The goal of this year’s conference is to educate, and promote acceptance and integration of Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) options by patients, clinicians, the medical system, judicial systems, government, policy makers, and social service

administrations. We will disseminate innovative, evidence based initiatives and treatment techniques to better serve patients and providers, improve program development and administration, promote integration across the continuum of care, and enhance patient outcomes to assist communities in developing an effective response to the opioid crisis. To do this, we need your help. We cannot accomplish these goals without your willingness to share your expertise and experiences.

The Workshop Committee encourages you to submit an abstract for a workshop or poster session presenting the latest programs, research and regulatory developments relevant to the field of MAT and highlighting innovative treatment techniques and evidence based initiatives. We invite you to present effective and proven strategies to assist healthcare partnerships and collaborations by advancing their understanding and acceptance of MAT for opioid use disorders as a crucial element to community wellness and response to the opioid epidemic. Proposals that focus on reducing MAT related stigma are also encouraged.
You will note in the on-line Call for Presentations that we are encouraging a broad number of topics for submission in order to provide a rich learning content cutting across multiple disciplines to advance the work of our field. We expect nothing less than to continue to provide the most cutting edge information at the conference. Please join leading experts in the field and consider submitting a proposal highlighting your expertise in research or in the provision of care.
To submit a proposal, please click HERE and follow the on-screen instructions. For questions or additional information regarding the Call for Presentations, please send e-mail to or call 856-423-3091.
We hope to see you in sunny Florida for what will be the premier conference on the treatment of opioid use disorders.
