Addiction Professional Leadership Initiative

This initiative will create a new generation of addiction professional leaders and accelerate change in the field. We seek submissions of innovative ideas that can change the way we prevent and treat addiction, particularly through strategies that enhance our workforce. We are particularly interested in submissions that address novel tools and ideas in the areas of recruitment and retention, diversity, promoting careers in addiction, enhancing support for addiction professionals, supervision, reducing the stigma of addiction, and prevention.
