Call For Abstracts

The 2021 conference - our first addiction leadership reunion since May 2019 - will focus on our experience during the tumultuous time of the pandemic, how it has affected our treatment community, and how we recover and move forward. Sessions should track the core competencies of treatment delivery listed and their guidelines as prescribed in the NAATP Quality Assurance Guidebook. We encourage submissions from industry professionals that fit within one or more of these domains, keeping in mind the overarching issues of treatment quality, evidence/value-based care, trauma, leadership, racism, DEI, and access to care.
