National Addiction Treatment Week

National Addiction Treatment Week is an initiative which promotes that addiction is a disease, evidence-based treatments are available, and recovery is possible. The week also highlights the need for clinicians to enter the field of addiction medicine.

Each year, National Addiction Treatment Week raises awareness about the gap between the number of patients who need addiction treatment and qualified medical professionals available to treat patients using evidence-based approaches. The week highlights the critical need for more clinicians to enter the field of addiction medicine. View compelling videos of medical professionals sharing how treating addiction and/or becoming board certified in addiction medicine has impacted their careers.  Also, explore ways to be involved!
