National Addiction Treatment Week is a pivotal, annual event that spotlights the addiction treatment gap and champions compassionate, evidence-based approaches to care. Supported by the Wisconsin Society of Addiction Medicine. This weeklong initiative amplifies three life-saving messages:
1. Addiction is a chronic, treatable medical disease.
2. Effective treatments are available.
3. Recovery is not only possible but achievable.
By sharing the stories and experiences of dedicated practitioners who provide care to patients with addiction, we aim to end the stigma surrounding addiction and encourage medical professionals to embrace individualized, compassionate addiction care.
