Utah Valley University will host the 5th annual UVU Conference on Addiction Friday, March 4, 2016 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Sorensen Student Center on the UVU Orem campus.
Our goal is to provide information on a wide-range of issues specific to the topic of addiction. The symposium advisory committee welcomes our keynote presenter, Sean Astin, and a selection of concurrent session workshops dealing with various aspects of addiction including – treatment, prevention, recovery, non-chemical addictive behavior (such as pornography, gambling, etc) and various other related issues.
The conference is designed to meet the needs of university students, addiction professionals and community participants. Based upon previous participation – we anticipate over a dozen concurrent presentations to offer insight and education on addiction-specific topics. Sessions will provide information to anyone with an interest in substance abuse or compulsive addiction.
In order to provide additional resources and information to conference participants, exhibition space is being made available for community and state service providers. Exhibitors will offer information packets, guidance and insight to participants visiting their booths.
