We’ll get an update on how the growing addiction treatment industry is keeping up with its related research cousins with A.THOMAS MCLELLAN, Ph.D CEO and co-founder of the Treatment Research Institute and an experienced substance abuse researcher; ADAM C. BROOKS, Ph.D., Senior Scientist at the Treatment Research Institute; and ANNE M. FLETCHER, MS, RD. a medical writer whose latest book is “Inside Rehab: The Surprising Truth about Addiction Treatment and How to Get Help that Works.”
