Annual Addictions Conference

6th Annual Addictions Conference:
Weathering the Storm
Wednesday, October 9, 2019
8:30am – 4:30pm

Now in it’s sixth year, CHEP Inc.’s Annual Addiction Conference has established itself as a leading program centered on educating medical professionals working within the realm of addictions. This full-day program brings together an expert lineup of speakers presenting on timely topics surrounding this epidemic that is plaguing our communities. As our dual mission at CHEP works to provide lifesaving support for homeless veterans, we see the direct impact the information gained through this program brings to the clinicians working with this population, as well as the impact made to community at large.
