Prevention – Treatment - Recovery
The 2017 Australian and New Zealand Addiction Conference was held on the Gold Coast from the 15th – 17th May. The program included 8 inspirational and innovative keynote presenters, 45 concurrent speakers and 4 workshops.
The 2017 Conference Program focused on practical solutions and knowledge that directly benefits those who suffer from addiction. Presenters focused not only upon what they had discovered, but also how delegates can apply this information when returning to their patients, clients and friends.
The Australian and New Zealand Addiction Conference would like to thank those who participated in this year’s Conference; especially the speakers who provided beneficial, powerful and thought-provoking presentations, our Gold Sponsors (Indivior & The Hader Clinic) and Partners, the Program Advisory Committee and our Delegates! Your ongoing support is greatly appreciated and we are looking forward to welcoming you all back next year.
2018 Conference dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
The Resource Centre will be available shortly for the conference delegates. This will include podcasts of the presentations, photos and some PowerPoint presentations. Please do not hesitate to contact the Conference Secretariat should you have any questions.
