9th Annual Addiction Day and Scientific Conference – May 26th, 2017
The vision of the Addiction Day Conference and Networking Fair is to increase public awareness of addiction and mental health problems, and to enhance knowledge, competencies and treatment care. Through a combination of diverse presentations, workshops and networking opportunities, we hope to bring together healthcare professionals from across the care continuum for a day of learning and discussion.
9th Annual Addiction Day Networking Fair
In recognition of the many different organizations that promote and provide recovery-oriented services to clients and families in Alberta, we are pleased to continue our tradition of an Annual Networking Fair during our Addiction Day Conference.
Detoxification, opioid dependency programs, residential/inpatient, outpatient, and community services are an integral component of effective treatment. The Addiction Day Networking Fair would like to highlight these exceptional services that span our addiction and mental health care continuum.
