Issues of Substance 2019
November 25 @ 8:00 am – November 27 @ 5:00 pm
The Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction invites you to attend CCSA’s Issues of Substance 2019 conference. The three-day event — which regularly sells out — takes place November 25–27, 2019, at the Westin Ottawa Hotel and is part of National Addictions Awareness Week.
This year, CCSA is pleased to have the Mental Health Commission of Canada as a national partner for our event. As part of their involvement, there will be a strong mental health and addiction focus in the conference program.
The theme for this year’s conference is Evidence and Perspectives, Compassion and Action, reflecting the importance of relying on research and real-world experience as we identify sustainable solutions to meet the needs of Canadians suffering from substance use disorder.
The three-day event provides an unparalleled opportunity to share new research and best practices, and receive practical training related to substance use and addiction, prevention, treatment and recovery. It is also a unique opportunity for a broad cross-section of communities to meet. Come join us for plenary sessions, presentations, posters and interactive workshops at Canada’s premier national conference on substance use and addiction!
