Title: C4 Recovery Foundation proudly presents Advancing Women Leaders in Behavioral Health: Masterclass in Leadership Development
Series Info: This event is part of an ongoing series that started at our AXIS, WCSAD, and CORE conferences. Please check those websites for updated information and make plans to join us.


The relative shortage of female leadership presents an urgent challenge to the behavioral health sector. Technological, financial, legislative, and other factors are advancing and furthering the industry, making gender equality advances paramount. As a group representing half of the targeted treatment population, women should be strategically involved at the highest level in terms of creating new structures, modalities, and paradigms for how treatment is defined, delivered, regulated, and compensated. Women have a unique perspective that is necessary for steering the behavioral health community through the current and upcoming waves of change and transforming present challenges into opportunities for growth.

The 2018 Master Classes will focus on essential factors for leadership success and career advancement. Empowered, high-performing women leaders will share global, practical and personal steps necessary on the road to Leadership. During this class, women will have lecture material and small group experiences, allowing for discovery of current opportunities in the field, as well as guidance on how to follow one’s bliss.

The critical mass indicates that the time is right for women to step up and help guide the future of behavioral health’s choices about how clients are treated, how businesses are structured and operated to comply with legislative policy, how organizations remain ethical and healthy fiscally, and how the economical delivery of quality series can remain sustainable.

  • CCSAD is a wonderful conference bringing together addiction professionals of all types in one large collaborative setting. It has become an absolute must for me each year and provides excellent quality and value for continuing medical education.

  • This event was one of the most informative learning experiences I've ever had in my 28 years of work!

  • The Cape Cod Symposium is a primary source of new information and new developments in the field of addiction. It is my most important professional development activity every year. The reputation of the conference seems to just keep getting better and better. See you in September.

  • I have gone to many conferences in my over 30 years in the addiction field and I can say I like this one the best. It was professional people with great, knowledge, insights, and experiences getting together and sharing and supporting each other. That to me is what it is all about.

  • I look forward to this conference every year. I always leave with a full tool bag and a renewed confidence in new and exciting ways to take care of those suffering from addictions!

  • CCSAD continues to be the premier training and education event for the addiction field because it does so well what others try to do, but fall short. It provides the opportunity for the frontline practitioner and administrator to experience gold standard, relevant, challenging, thought-provoking, and meaningful content, while also offering unique networking opportunities that are both fun and renewing for the spirit. One simply can't do better!
