The Cornerstone of Independent, Evidence-Based Addiction Medicine

ACAAM has been working tirelessly for more than a decade to formally establish addiction medicine within the U.S. medical landscape by advocating for the nation’s first accredited addiction medicine fellowship programs. ACAAM’s leadership was critical to addiction medicine obtaining American Board of Medical Specialties recognition and achieving ACGME accreditation for addiction medicine fellowship programs. Today, ACAAM is the proud academic home for addiction medicine faculty and trainees.

ACAAM is dedicated to training and supporting the next generation of academic addiction medicine leaders needed to meet the ubiquitous health challenges from substance use. Central to this mission is committed action to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion of the academic addiction medicine workforce.
