  • Submissions must not contain information that promotes unethical activities or business practices.
  • Submissions must for columns must be 1000-1500 words.
  • Submissions for feature articles should aim to be 1500-3000 words. Please contact the editor if you would like to submit an article longer than 3,000 words.

  • This is not a peer-reviewed journal; submissions reporting on original data collection should be submitted elsewhere unless data was collected through NAADAC's PhD Survey service.  Our magazine can review findings printed in peer-reviewed journals and discuss the implications of that research to the addiction or other helping professions. If you have questions, please contact the editor.
  • Editor reserves the right to refuse publications, edit and/or condense submissions.

Required Terminology

NAADAC requests that presenters refrain from using terminology that perpetuates the negative stigmas surrounding those with substance use disorders or living in recovery.

  • Instead of "addict," use "person with a substance use disorder"
  • Instead of "addicted to X," use "has an X use disorder," "has a serious X use disorder," or "has a substance use disorder involving X" (if more than one substance is involved)
  • Instead of "alcoholic," use "person with an alcohol use disorder"
  • Instead of "drug/substance abuse," use "substance use disorder"
  • Instead of "former addict," use "person in recovery" or "person in long-term recovery"
