What people are saying about last year’s Conference

“This is an exciting area of Addiction Medicine”

“The venue was perfect because even though we were indoors all day you didn’t feel like you hadn’t seen the outside”

“The conference was amazing and the only feedback I have is for the people who didn’t come and didn’t come on purpose. We all need to open our minds and collaborate on fighting addiction and mental health. Only then came true progress be made”

“Amazing networking that was happening, conversations so passionate and important they could not be at the session on time! I also loved that although the event was sponsored by private industry the speakers did not hold back their perspectives on same. This was also profound. This conference was amazing and I think this focus on recovery capital is the sea change or paradigm shift our system needs”
