6th Australian & New Zealand Addiction Conference

Monday, 11th May 2020 to Wednesday, 13th May 2020
Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort and Spa
Gold Coast

In the world of addiction, nobody faces the same journey.

Prevention, treatment and recovery is not one size fits all, and when it comes to physical, mental and behavioural addictions, breaking the stigma is essential.

At the Australian and New Zealand Addiction Conference, you have access to the latest research, projects and strategies to help meet the diverse and complex needs of your clients.

Now in its sixth year, the event has gained significant recognition in the industry as a result of its all-encompassing conference program, highlighting a range of mental, physical and behavioural addictions.

Unite with fellow addiction, behavioural, and mental health professionals, further your knowledge and empower your clients on their recovery journey.


The conference offers four expert-driven streams:

  • Prevention
  • Treatment
  • Recovery
  • Emerging trends.
