After a successful inaugural year, the Department of Psychiatry, in partnership with the Utah Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health and the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing, is looking forward to hosting the 2nd Annual Addictions Update Conference on June 6-9, 2018. Medical, addiction, and behavioral health professionals are invited to attend the conference, which will take place at the Marriott University Park in Salt Lake City, UT.
The conference program focuses on increasing knowledge of substance use disorders and developing effective prevention and intervention programs through science, policy and treatment. Specifically, the 2018 conference program will address contemporary issues of addiction across the lifespan, with a focus on suicide and ethics. Ultimately, the conference hopes to facilitate improved systems, clinical modalities, and client care for individuals, families, and communities.
