Collaborative Perspectives on Addiction
The Collaborative Perspectives on Addiction Conference is an annual conference hosted by APA Div. 50 (Society of Addiction Psychology) and APA Div. 28 (Psychopharmacology and Substance Abuse). The gap between addiction research and treatment is a significant problem that is frequently voiced. Most notably, the implementation of research-based findings into actual clinical practice can take several years, if it happens at all. In addition, clinicians’ first-hand experiences and treatment concerns often fail to shift the course of research. To overcome these hurdles, the theme of the 2014 Div. 28/Div. 50 Collaborative Perspectives on Addiction meeting is "Changing Addictive Behavior: Bench to Bedside and Back Again."
The beautiful W Hotel in Midtown Atlanta will be the venue for the 2014 CPA. The hotel is located in the heart of Midtown and is local to public transportation. Friday morning will be pre-conference workshops, with the conference held Friday and Saturday and culminating in a poster session and evening activities for Saturday night.
Room rates are $159 night. The CPA discounted rate is only valid through Jan. 29, 2014.
