Annual Conference on Addictions: 12th Annual Road to Recovery

Road to Recovery

Getting a Grip on Legal Substances of Abuse

Road to Recovery is an annual conference that takes place during National Recovery Month and highlights hot topics within the field of addiction psychiatry.

The theme of this year's conference will focus on legal substances of abuse. We aim to tackle the research around the use, treatment, and journey to recovery of easily accessible and commonly abused drugs. We plan to feature sessions that concentrate on substances such as caffeine, alcohol, and nicotine.
