  • CCSAD provided a professional opportunity to connect with positive and ethical peers.

  • Wonderful turnout of participants and great opportunity for networking and securing new relationships. Thanks for another great year!

  • It was a pleasure to be a Platinum sponsor at such a well-respected event.

  • I have attended CCSAD for many years now and find it is fantastic every year. I always take something wonderful away and learn a great deal.

  • This symposium is by far the best around. I have attended many others and they were wonderful, but CCSAD is outstanding.

  • THANK YOU that CCSAD is the MOST multidisciplinary conference for Addiction Medicine professionals.

  • Thank you for continuing and expanding this program as well as making it an opportunity for a supportive break from a very busy and demanding profession.

  • The conference is always wonderful, and I thoroughly enjoy attending not just for the learning experience but also for the new friends I have met in past and present attendance.

  • I especially VALUE that CCSAD is the primary multidisciplinary conference for practicing clinicians and policy-makers, where integrative care management is so clearly shown to be in our patients' best interests.

  • This Symposium always gives me new insights and perspectives re: addiction and conditions for treatment strategies. I always learn something new and am always eager to pass it on.
