ROGRAM COMMITTEE

Special thanks are extended to this year’s program committee members who accepted the quest of creating a new and vibrant program focused on a wide variety of aspects of addiction. A combination of the ‘traditional’ tracks and new areas provided the framework for this year’s program development. Within each area, committee members did not shy away from exploring and challenging current beliefs and practices to create a program pertinent to individuals working in all programs and geographic areas.
A full committee roster will be released soon.
