Addiction Leadership Awards
NAATP is dedicated to recognizing the outstanding work and achievements of addiction treatment providers and industry professionals. We celebrate the way these individuals have advanced the ethics, policy, and practice of addiction treatment. The Annual National Addiction Treatment Awards are presented each year at the Opening Night Banquet at NAATP National.** We are always accepting nominations for the following year through the link at the bottom of the page.
**Due to the cancellation of this year's NAATP National Conference, the Addiction Leadership Awards are not being presented for 2020. If you submitted an award nomination for 2020, we will hold your nomination for next year's recipient selection. We are now accepting nominations for the 2021 Conference.
