The American Association for the Treatment of Opioid Dependence works with federal and state agency officials concerning opioid treatment policy throughout the United States. We also work with our partner, the World Federation for the Treatment of Opioid Dependence, with regard to international initiatives and working with designated agencies within the United Nations.
The 2021 American Association for the Treatment of Opioid Dependence, Inc. (AATOD) Conference will be held April 10-14, 2021 at The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas, NV. The 2021 conference theme, “Forging Partnerships to Improve the Quality of Care” highlights the issues and challenges of medication assisted treatment in the context of the current opioid use/abuse epidemic.
Our intent is to educate and promote acceptance and integration of MAT options by patients, families, clinicians, the medical system, judicial systems, government, policy makers, social service administrations, and the general public. We will disseminate innovative, evidence-based initiatives and treatment techniques to better serve patients and providers, improve program development and administration, promote integration across the continuum of care, and enhance patient outcomes to assist communities in developing an effective response to this crisis.
The AATOD Conference is the largest gathering of the opioid treatment community. This conference brings innovative people together in a diverse array of forums and workshops. Hot Topic Roundtable discussions, inspirational plenary sessions, in-person and virtual tours of programs, and exhibit booths with the latest technologies, science and products that support our work are just a few of the activities that surely stimulated participant discussion, debate and innovative ideas to take back home to our respective areas of work, our communities, and our treatment programs nationwide.
