    National Addiction Treatment Week, hosted by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM), raises awareness about the critical gap between the number of patients who need addiction treatment and their access to qualified medical professionals trained to provide evidence-based, specialty treatment. It also highlights the urgent need for clinicians to enter the field of addiction medicine and expand the qualified workforce.

    Learn about the need to expand the qualified addiction medicine workforce. Follow National Addiction Treatment Week or #TreatmentWeek on social media:

    This year, National Addiction Treatment Week’s focus will be to encourage clinicians and providers who work in a variety of medical settings and specialties to learn more about addiction and evidence-based treatment and consider career paths that emphasize the field of addiction medicine. When patients are treated appropriately by medical professionals trained in addiction medicine, we can save lives and improve treatment outcomes.

    Physicians, board-certified in addiction medicine, and clinicians who treat addiction daily will share why they chose to treat addiction and inspire other medical professionals to join them in learning more about evidence-based addiction treatment.

    Wisconsin’s Doctor Day brings together physicians from every specialty and practice environment to meet with their legislators and advocate on health care issues affecting healthcare. The multi-specialty nature of Doctor Day makes it among the most unique advocacy events for physicians in the country.

    Physicians and medical students at all stages of their careers will join together in Madison to take part in policy breakout sessions, hear keynote presentations and participate in a briefing on the day's priority issues. Attendees will then participate in group visits with legislators and legislative staff at the Wisconsin State Capitol. The day will conclude with a Doctor Day reception where you’ll have the chance to connect socially with your friends and peers. 

    Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or brand new to the legislative process, attending Doctor Day will provide you advocacy tools and skills to make your voices heard. Sign up today and join colleagues from all across Wisconsin at the Capitol on May 5.
