This annual conference offers a two day educational program of speakers and a half day of workshops. The aim of the conference is to broaden the understanding of the range of addictions, comorbidity, pain management, harm reduction, mental health and wellbeing and to look at solutions in regard to prevention, treatment and recovery through evidence based research, programs and practical models. The conference is inclusive of varying populations, the professional, peer support workers and the role of the family.

The 2019 program will incorporate 9 keynote speakers, over 50 concurrent presenters and 6 engaging workshops, giving delegates an opportunity to collaborate, earn professional development points, network and learn from like-minded professionals.

This conference promotes and encourages participation from all parts of the sector towards a shared appreciation and learning of what medical, psychosocial and peer based approaches offer, through the experiences of service users, clinicians and researchers.
