Nelson J. Bradley Life Time Achievement Award

In 1983, a young but rapidly emerging organization recognized Nelson J. Bradley, M.D.  with its first annual outstanding achievement award.  Dr. Bradley participated and led the pioneering activities in Minnesota that resulted in a multi-disciplinary approach to treating persons with alcoholism and the recognition of alcoholism as a treatable disease.  Through his early efforts treatment models were developed which have been modified, but are still in place today.

Shortly after presenting Dr. Bradley with this award, Dr. Bradley died and the award was named in honor of Dr. Bradley and his leadership in the field of addiction treatment.
The intention of this annual award is to recognize the life long achievements of individuals and to preserve the memory of the many contributions to modern addiction treatment that Dr. Bradley so generously shared with the addiction treatment field.
