BFI Conference Publications
In October, 2007, the conference "Extending the Benefits of Addiction Treatment; Practical Strategies for Continuing Care and Recovery" was held in Los Angeles.
One of the primary goals of the conference was to arrive at position statements regarding continuing care. By the end of the conference, participants produced position statements concerning three issues: (a) what is currently known about the components of effective continuing care, (b) factors that are likely to improve continuing care, and (c) key questions that require additional research.
Conclusions and recommendations were published in the Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment, October, 2008
