Testimonials

"I have seen NAATP go through a paradigm shift in the last couple of years. Currently, NAATP is the strongest it has ever been with the leadership of the Board of Directors, the leadership with Marvin and our team at NAATP. Together NAATP is making our industry safer, stronger, more ethical. NAATP National is one of the conferences that truly unites NAATP members. It encourages the power of connection, is empowering and inspiring. The people are kind, caring and compassionate. There is something for everyone here at this conference. When I think of NAATP I think of community, family, and synergy. It’s a great way to collaborate with treatment providers from across the country and build lasting relationships and that sets it apart from other conferences."

"The engagement and conversations are energizing. Seems like more people in the industry that are attending the NAATP National Conference are paying attention to the details, wanting to do the right thing, and trying to make a difference. I hear it, I see it, and I can feel it."

"NAATP National is the only must-do conference we attend each year on behalf of New Directions for Women. Having attended for the last 9 years, the quality and benefits of the conference continue to grow each time. I know I’ll see many old friends, and also meet new business contacts that I stay in a relationship with over time. The break-out sessions are always timely, informative, and I find myself referring back to those notes throughout the year."

"The National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers (NAATP) has been a strong voice representing the addiction treatment industry for over 40 years. I’ve attended all of the national addiction conferences and there is no better place than NAATP National to surround yourself with the executives, practitioners, and scientists who define best practices in our field. If you want to affiliate your company with the best, this is the place to be."
