NATIONAL ADDICTION TREATMENT WEEK - National Addiction Treatment Week, which takes place in October, works on ending stigma surrounding addiction in the medical community, inspiring practitioners to learn about and treat addiction, and encouraging physicians to specialize in addiction medicine – “Addiction is a chronic, medical disease. Treatments are available. Recovery is possible.” The week will take place October 16-22, 2023.

ADDICTION MEDICINE ADVOCACY CONFERENCE - This two-day virtual advocacy event is a collaboration between ACAAM, ASAM, The American Osteopathic Academy of Addiction Medicine (AOAAM), the American Psychological Association’s Society of Addiction Psychology (SoAP), and the American College of Medical Toxicology (ACMT). Attendees receive training from expert advocacy professionals on the issues most important to the practice of addiction medicine and hear from special guest speakers. On day two, attendees participate in digital advocacy issues and in carefully planned virtual meetings with Capitol Hill policymakers and their staff, to advance an ambitious policy agenda designed to support addiction treatment professionals as they treat patients and save lives.
