The National Conference on Addiction Disorders began in 2010 as the national expansion of the Southeast Conference on Addiction Disorders (SECAD). During the ensuing years NCAD became the destination conference for clinical professionals and executives alike aiming to improve and refine patient care as well as develop sustainable and growing treatment organizations. In 2018 the conference added “alcohol” to its name to bring national attention to the impact of binge drinking, fetal alcohol syndrome, and other alcohol-related diseases. Produced by the Institute for the Advancement of Behavioral Healthcare, NCAD is now the premiere conference for stakeholders of all types working to address the country’s ongoing addiction crisis.
