“Treat Addiction. Save Lives.”

Education:
It is imperative that we, as leaders in the field of Addiction healthcare educate the public, primary care and specialty physicians and fellow addiction physicians, as well as state and federal legislators regarding the disease of addiction, its science and state-of-the-art evidence-based treatment. We also need to develop standardized treatment protocols. We need high-quality CME for primary care and specialty physicians and fellow addiction physicians; and we need for the ABMS to recognize and endorse ABAM certification. We need to continue to develop Addiction Medicine Fellowship sites and opportunities, and promote the ETSU Addiction Medicine training program that has been proposed.
Accredited addiction medicine fellowship sites continue steady growth

The American Board of Addiction Medicine (ABAM) Foundation recently announced the accreditation of eight addiction medicine fellowship programs, bringing the total number of accredited programs to 18.
