This year, we are excited to bring Substance Abuse Professionals together for the following objectives:

  1. We will identify advocacy roles, issues, and opportunities for opioid treatment providers across the spectrum of opioid treatment.
  2. We will explore the “Team Concept of Care” in an OTP to address issues of significance with a multidisciplinary approach to care.
  3. We will provide a unique opportunity to network with opioid treatment colleagues in Addiction Nursing and Counseling from across the state.
