Increase awareness and celebrate success of those in recovery.
The Ruth Fox scholarship program was started to encourage emerging physicians-in-training to pursue the addiction medicine field. It is important for ASAM to provide the education for these new physicians to identify and treat patients with addictive disorders because many medical schools do not include addiction medicine coursework or rotations.
The new policy statement addresses the broad public health and safety aspects of current efforts to legalize marijuana use.
ASAM convened stakeholders, including several medical societies, eight federal agencies, patient and payers organizations at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, for a press conference and stakeholder summit to announce and accelerate the adoption of its newly released National Practice Guideline for the Use of Medications in the Treatment of Addiction Involving Opioid Use (National Practice Guideline) and associated products.
On September 17, 2015 from 7:00-8:00PM ET, the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) will host an online event at the White House in celebration of National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month (Recovery Month) with a special focus on youth in recovery. You are encouraged to host a viewing party of your friends, family, and stakeholders. With your help, this event will be a significant occasion to celebrate and inspire millions of young persons in recovery, and raise awareness about critical resources and commitments needed to help other young people in their journeys.
