Addiction Medicine 2014 Conference

Please join us in Asheville on March 21 & 22 for Addiction Medicine 2014, the state’s 5th annual regional conference on addiction.

Once again, national and regionally recognized speakers will provide updates for a year of anticipated changes and ongoing challenges. Plenaries will focus on practical clinical updates such as rational opioid and benzodiazepines prescribing, guideline-driven care for common medical and psychiatric co-morbidities, and updates on new medications and new drugs of abuse. A variety of seminars will also allow participants to address other issues in addictions, including basic counseling skills, drug screening, managing chronic pain and psychiatric co-morbidities and issues related to pregnancy.

All of this, plus opportunities for person to person networking in a beautiful springtime mountain setting!
