About the Summit

With alcohol and drug addiction ravaging our country, the Addiction Professional Summit was developed in direct response to today’s professionals requiring more in-depth education on particularly pressing concerns, such as the alarming rise of prescription drug abuse.  

This opioid-focused, intimate event will provide clinicians, physicians, managers, and other professionals with an in-depth education and open forum for discussion on how to make a measurable impact in patients’ lives and providers’ communities.

 The Addiction Professional Summit is presented by Vendome Healthcare Media, the number one source for cutting-edge content in the addiction treatment and behavioral healthcare fields. Through its two award-winning brands—Addiction Professional and Behavioral Healthcare —Vendome reaches professionals of all stripes, including: front-line clinicians and private-practice therapists; nurses, physicians, and other medical professionals; and executive-level decision makers at a wide range of profit, not-for-profit, public, and private mental health and substance use treatment organizations.
