We are excited to announce our 2016 joint conference with the International Society of Addiction Medicine (ISAM). Our colleagues from Quebec are busily enlisting the local resources. One of our scientific tracks will highlight presentations in French – which should be of specific appeal to attendants who are Francophone. International plenary speakers, including Dr. Nora Volkow, Dr. Pedro Ruiz, Dr. Amine Benyamina, Dr. Kathleen Brady and Dr. Julie Bruneau have readily accepted our invitations.
