Every year during the Annual Conference, we honor the fellow addiction professionals that we have lost in the past year. Because this Annual Conference is virtual, we are using this page to honor their lives and the wonderful work they did as addiction professionals.

If you would like to include your loved one and fellow addiction professional to our in memoriam at our Annual Conferences, please send the name, credentials, state of practice, picture, of your loved one and/or colleague who has passed away to to [email protected].
