Addiction Medicine

The Addiction Medicine Foundation’s mission is directed at advancing training to increase the addiction medicine physician workforce. The Foundation has been leading a strategic national campaign for addiction medicine since its founding 10 year ago. On October 25, 2016 a second White House sponsored symposium, Medicine Responds to Addiction II, was held. The symposium highlighted the success to date and brought together key stakeholders to set next steps.
