2022 Awards

The 2022 Awards Program took place on Wednesday, November 2, 2022, during the Conference for a moving tribute to those individuals who had been nominated and selected by their peers for extraordinary service in the opioid treatment community. These successful Award recipients have devoted themselves to improving the lives of patients in our treatment system. Dr. Vincent Dole and Dr. Marie Nyswander were the first recipients of this Award in 1983. The Association has been responsible for bestowing this honor since the first Regional Conference of 1984 in New York. A complete list of the AATOD Award Recipients may be found here.

NYSWANDER/DOLE “MARIE” AWARD
The 2022 American Association for the Treatment of Opioid Dependence Conference recognizes outstanding contributions to opioid treatment by honoring individuals with the Nyswander/Dole Award. We honored nine individuals who were nominated and selected by their peers for extraordinary service in the opioid treatment community.

FRIEND OF THE FIELD AWARD
The prestigious Friend of the Field Award was established by AATOD’s Board of Directors. This award recognizes extraordinary contributions to the field of opioid treatment by an individual whose work, although not directly related to opioid treatment, has had a significant impact on our field. The 2022 Friend of the Field Award has been awarded to the Honorable Jeri Beth Cohen.
RICHARD LANE/ROBERT HOLDEN PATIENT ADVOCACY AWARD
Richard Lane was a long-term heroin user who, upon release from prison in 1967, was instrumental in establishing one of the Nation’s first methadone treatment programs. In 197 4, he became the Executive Director of Man Alive and later served as Vice President of the American Methadone Treatment Association and as Vice Chairman of the Governor’s Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse in Maryland. Mr. Lane was a passionate advocate for methadone treatment and, by disclosing his own treatment experiences, provided inspiration to patients and colleagues alike. Robert Holden was also a recovering heroin user, who later became the Director of PIDARC, an outpatient methadone treatment program in the District of Columbia. He later served as the Vice President of AATOD, succeeding Richard Lane’s term of office. This award was established in 1995 and recognizes extraordinary achievements in patient advocacy.
The 2022 Richard Lane/Robert Holden Patient Advocacy Award has been awarded to Sara E. Gefvert, CRSICPS, CMA of Pennsylvania.
