Due to COVID-19 we will not be holding the Addiction Medicine Conference as scheduled in Asheville. However, we understand YOU still want to receive up-to-date addiction medicine related education and WE are here to help. Like others, we have adjusted our plans and are now offering an online version of the 2020 Addiction Medicine Conference to provide the latest up to date information in addiction medicine!

The virtual conference will take place May 1-2, 2020 and is appropriate for primary care providers as well as addiction medicine specialists. COVID-19 and its impact on addiction medicine will be a major focus, including a presentation by leaders at the CDC, SAMHSA and NC DHHS. The program offers 15 hours of CME/CE, 20 presenters and 20 topics including ACES, stimulants, kratom, vaping, cannabis, behavioral addictions, NAS, UDS, detox, infectious comorbidities and more.

Special Note: If you previously registered for the live event in Asheville, NC, you will be receiving a full refund and will need to register for the new virtual version of the event. We hope everyone who has already signed up to attend will continue to join us virtually.

Please join us for the 11th annual Addiction Medicine Conference – the region’s premier conference for substance use disorder and addiction-related education and updates, hosted by the Governor’s Institute, North Carolina Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse Services, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and the North Carolina Society of Addiction Medicine.

The 2019 conference attracted over 250 participants including addiction medicine specialists, primary care physicians, psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, physicians assistants, medical students and other healthcare professionals from North Carolina, Tennessee, South Carolina and across the United States.
