We owe a big thank you to the many professionals who support our education efforts each year. As in past years, we have been able to attract some of the leading figures in prevention, treatment and recovery support to name a few. They will present the latest information, trends and evidence-based practices to help each of us continue to grow professionally. Our fields are changing at an unprecedented rate.
