UTAH FALL CONFERENCE AGENDA - to be Released Summer 2024

UTAH FALL CONFERENCE
2023 – PROGRAM

In order to include the latest research, trends, and interventions – from prevention to tertiary levels, this program will continue to evolve. Please check back periodically to capture all the topics and formats that will be sure to provide invaluable information and tools for you to use in your own daily work in the addiction fields.

Keynote speakers will offer you insights, ‘reality checks’, and intelligence that will leave lasting imprints. National and local speakers will give you what you need to update your practices, policies, and skills. Join this program to stay on top of this dynamic field and ahead of the trends confronting us!

STAY STRONG AND CONTINUE TO GROW

Experience timely topics that span five special tracks. While five different program committees worked hard to develop this year’s unique program, we are all in this field together. For this reason, there are many overlaps and surely you will find multiple topics that appeal to you. You do not need to stay in one track, nor do all topics clearly fit into one track only. This key is offered as a general guide for you to select topics of interest and identify foci/directions behind the topics.
