Southeast Conference on Addictive Disorders (SECAD) 2009

SECAD 2009: Feb. 9-11, Sheraton Atlanta Hotel, Atlanta, Ga.

Vendome Group, publishers of Addiction Professional and Behavioral Healthcare Magazines, is pleased to announce that in February of 2009, after more than 33 years, SECAD will reinvent itself, and in doing so will change the way the addiction profession educates, instructs and informs those in our industry preventing, intervening, and treating addictive disorders.

For the first time SECAD will turn, not to one, but to the two most highly regarded addiction associations in the world, NAATP (the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers) and NAADAC (the Association for Addiction Professionals), to develop a conference agenda that will work to educate and inspire counselors, trainers, medical professionals, and managers.

Together these two associations will use their vast experience, knowledge, and industry connections to develop sessions and workshops that will educate and inspire. Keynote presentations and panel discussions will highlight and debate key treatment strategies and the impact of new laws that will impact patient rights, insurance, and continuation of treatment.
