Following on the success of Adolescent and Young Adult pre-Conference summits held in 2013 and 2014, this pre-Conference event would run concurrently on the Friday before the NAATP Conference and address challenges and opportunities of integrating spirituality as experienced in 12-step recovery in addictions treatment at various levels of care. A particular area of emphasis is the application of historic 12-step principles and practices for patients with complex presentations that include addiction interaction and co-occurring physical, relational, and mental health disorders.
The one-day program would draw upon key leaders in spiritual care qualified to represent professional, integrated spiritual care services within a recovery-oriented multidisciplinary treatment team approach. It would provide opportunities for fellowship, networking and sharing of ideas and best practices.

One of our focused changes for the 2015 NAATP Leadership Conference, was to create additional value to sponsorships and increase the networking opportunities. As a result, there are a few slight changes to our programming to help drive this vital communication.
One of the new features at the 2015 NAATP Leadership Conference, is the off-site dinner on Saturday May 16th (after the New Member reception). As many organizations host a dinner at our conference, we wanted to provide you the opportunity to host this dinner at a location that would otherwise be unfeasible. We have booked the Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography for an exclusive setting to host a networking dinner. This dinner will feature high quality, catered fine dining meals, in the private setting of Southern California’s premier aquarium. The aquarium is situated on the cliffs of La Jolla, CA overlooking the Pacific Ocean in a picturesque setting. Featuring over 3,000 animals ranging from seahorses to sharks, this dinner opportunity offers you to have dinner with the fish, not just overlooking the fish. The aquarium features 4 different areas, including interactive displays, tanked animals, tidepools and a shark tank. Cost per plate is $100 or $1,000 per table. If purchasing a table, you are able to decorate the table as you would like and include giveaways on your table. You will of course have 10 seats available to giveaway per table. For more information on this special event, feel free to contact the NAATP office (561-429-4527 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
Other Sponsorship Opportunities are available here.
The Annual NAATP Golf Outing has become a much anticipated event in itself. This year’s Golf Outing will be hosted on site at the Omni La Costa Resort and Spa, and will feature the Champions Golf Course. For the first time in the history of the outing, golfers will have the opportunity to when a brand new car as our Hole-in-One Prize. Featuring the premier 16th hole, which has become known as the “Tiger Woods hole” because of his epic playoff performance against Tom Lehman in 1997, the Champions Course features beautiful landscape, and playable terrain for golfers of all skill levels.
The Annual NAATP Golf Outing will take place on Saturday May 16th with a 7:00am breakfast and 8:00am shotgun.
Another feature of this year’s outing will be the enhancement of giveaways through our inaugural Tee Sponsorship. This year, organizations are offered the opportunity to not only sponsor a tee, but also set-up a table to provide the golfers with branded goodies, such as waters, Sport Drinks, golf tees / balls, etc. These sponsorships are limited, so if interested, register early. For those participating, this added feature provides you the opportunity to not only interact with various individuals throughout your round of golf, but also added value of nice goodies you get to enjoy and take home.
Of course, no Golf Outing is complete with a celebratory lunch and award ceremony for the winning teams and individual performances. So, lunch will be held on the deck overlooking the 18th hole of the Champions course.
This Golf Outing is exclusive to attendees of the conference. You can register for the conference and golf outing here.
