All presentation proposals should therefore be submitted by 17 November 2017 to give time to evaluate them, contact presenters, design and print programme and magazine.

  • Recognition and credibility within the industry at this premier event
  • New networking opportunities as the Recovery Plus audience hear your expertise and experience
  • Participation in the growth of your profession and industry, increasing access to treatment and improving client outcomes.

Guidelines + Presentation application form

The Recovery Plus programme will be presented to the IC&RC credentialling body for CE/CPD approval. IC&RC is the International Certification & Reciprocity Consortium which has 50,000 addiction-treatment specialist members worldwide and whose credentials are recognized worldwide as the gold standard for competency in the field (in the US, they are written into state and national practice regulations and insurance legislation). Guidelines to bear in mind when presenting your submission in order to meet IC&RC guidelines can be accessed with the application form by clicking Recovery Plus 2018 presenter submission.

Sales pitches for products or services disguised as proposals will be rejected. Instead, we seek a well-defined topic with focused action-oriented objectives, practical application of material and completion of the presentation proposal.

Acknowledgement Presentation submissions will be acknowledged via email upon receipt.

Review period The Planning Committee will review the proposals by 17 November 2017, seven months prior to the event. This not only allows time for revisions and the submission process to apply for CEUs/CPDs but also to give 6 months of publicity to the accepted presentations before the Recovery Plus conference on 25+26 June 2018.
