Host Organization

NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals

Since 1972, NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals, has represented the professional interests of more than 100,000 addiction counselors, educators, and other addiction-focused health care professionals in the United States, Canada, and abroad. Beginning October 7th, NAADAC will host its annual conference in Indianapolis, Indiana. Over one thousand addiction professionals will attend the 6-day educational experience, which includes six keynote sessions, a panel discussion, 60 immersive breakout sessions, and more. The event will also commemorate the anniversary of NAADAC’s founding and celebrate 50 years of advancing the addiction profession.

Altarum will attend and exhibit at the event in support of our work in peer recovery training and support. Through funding from the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), we lead the Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Training and Technical Assistance (COSSAP TTA) Center on peer recovery support services (PRSS). Through the Center, we work with a broad cross-section of community institutions to integrate PRSS into a variety of criminal justice programs and settings.

At the event, we will share information on BJA COSSAP’s training and technical assistance service offering and how to participate in the program’s 2022 Peer Recovery Support Services Mentoring Initiative (PRSSMI). Applications for PRSSMI are accepted on a rolling basis. Learn more about both initiatives by downloading the forms below:

Social support from peers who have personally experienced addiction and recovery can improve outcomes for those struggling with substance use disorders. Learn more about how Altarum is advising organizations across the country on how to implement peer recovery programs.
