When was the last time you attended an event in-person?

Exhibitors/Organizers: Contact us to prominently place your event here. List last updated April 13, 2022.

It’s very likely you haven’t set foot in a hair salon, let alone a conference center, since March 2020. Today, much of the US is still under government-mandated lockdown or in areas with varying levels of restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But even though the events industry has come to screeching halt, the health industries are booming and exhausted. You need all the support you can get, right?

That’s why going to an addiction treatment conference is one way to help yourself and your rehab in these tough times.  Many have gone up virtually as well!

How Attending Addiction Treatment Conferences Can Help Your Center Grow

Medical professionals attend three (3) conferences per year, according to an Oglivy World Health study. Not only do events give you a chance to network and get out of your usual working surroundings, but they can also keep you updated on treatments and advances in medicine, trends in specialties and full industries, and help you complete requirements for Continuing Medical Learning (CMLs). 

There are a number of reasons to attend an industry conference for addiction treatment, including:

  • Meeting other professionals and experts in the substance use addiction treatment field;
  • Receiving discounts on resources and services for your rehab;
  • Learning about the latest in industry and treatment trends;
  • And, getting a sneak peek or witnessing a new product launch from a relevant company or other rehab.
  • Biggest one of them all is business development for referrals

The Best Addiction Treatment Conferences Happening

The events world flipped upside down in mid-March 2020 due to the global coronavirus pandemic. Most events were cancelled or postponed until 2021, and the addiction treatment conference lineup suffered the same blow. As events moved to virtual settings toward the end of Q3, we’ve compiled a mega list of conferences for the addiction treatment industries in the US. Many of these events have been taking place like clockwork at least once a year.

Prepare for Rehab Conferences: A Few Quick Tips

  • Since the events industry shuttered in March 2020 due to Covid-19, industry leaders took time to reel and innovate physical event experiences and transfer them to digital. With that, many of these events are free and provide attendees with valuable resources, replay recordings, and discounts.
  • No time to attend virtually? No problem. Register to receive the benefits of virtual events, such as industry discounts on software or business services, recordings to listen to when you have time, and replays and resources to download and share with your team.
  • Take a look at future events and take advantage of early bird specials for 2021. Some are even open for 2022!
  • And once COVID goes away, you’ll see your favorite addiction treatment marketing agency on the floors again.
