2016 NCADD Conference of Affiliates
Addiction Care Comes of Age: A Place in the Public Health Discourse
Residence Inn Capital View
Each year, NCADD Affiliates and others convene at the Conference of Affiliates for three days of training, networking and socializing.
The 2016 Conference will be held April 4-6 at the Residence Inn Capital View in Arlington, VA and will have a strong public policy and advocacy component, including a morning on Capitol Hill.
A special, exciting note: The Conference is being co-located with Alcohol Policy 17, which opens on Wednesday, April 6.
The theme for 2016, Addiction Care Comes of Age: A Place in the Public Health Discourse, will have a public health-oriented, public policy focus encompassing prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery. Topics also will address de-stigmatization and putting a public face on addiction.
In advance of the morning on Capitol Hill, there will be an intensive training session for participants. Networking opportunities will be available through the Round Robin session, which offers opportunities for Affiliates to learn about programs offered by other Affiliates and to exchange ideas and advice. During the Conference, recipients of the 2016 NCADD Prevention & Education Awards will present about their program, and there will be exhibits on Monday, April 4.
