Present

Download Form

Many of you who treat addiction and co-occurring disorders are doing some great work out there in the trenches and we want to offer you a forum to share your work with colleagues that will insure maximum exposure. In this regard we will be limiting the number of workshops and presentations we accept.

For our next conference we are encouraging the submission of workshop and presentation proposals that strengthen counseling skills, teach counselors new skills, or provide insights into the treatment of addiction that would inform better treatment design strategies and their implementation and execution. We continue to desire workshops that are experiential in design.

If your Presentation is accepted you will receive one free full conference registration per presenter and hotel accommodations for the evening of the presentation. Reimbursement for travel expenses is not provided. We look forward to your proposal.
