C4 Recovery Solutions (C4) is honored present the 8th annual West Coast Symposium on Addictive
Disorders. The mission of C4, a non-profit organization, is to improve the accessibility and quality of addiction treatment, and to promote long-term recovery solutions. C4 uses four Cs – Collaboration, Convening, Conferencing, and Consultation to achieve its goals. In addition to WCSAD, C4 operates three other premier addiction conferences – CORE (Clinical Overview of the Recovery Experience), CCSAD (Cape Cod Symposium on Addictive Disorders), and AXIS (addiction eXecutives industry summit). We invite you to explore our array of educational opportunities.

This two-and-a-half-day event is dedicated to continuing education and networking in the field of addictions and draws hundreds of regional, national, and international participants, lecturers and faculty. WCSAD combines workshops and seminars on timely industry topics with an unmatched showcase of the industry’s products and services. Your presence at WCSAD will help maintain and increase your competitive edge in the addictions industry.

Like its sister conference, the Cape Cod Symposium on Addictive Disorders (CCSAD), which hosted more than 1,100 attendees last year, WCSAD is a catalyst for forging new bonds, creating new referral networks and generating significant return on investments for exhibitors and supporters. At WCSAD, expect to reach Employee Assistance Professionals, Social Workers, Psychologists, Professional Counselors, Chemical Dependency Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapists, Rehabilitation Counselors & Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors and more.

We are indeed grateful for the commitment and support of the organizations that have made
WCSAD possible. The agencies represented range from local 12-step groups to national and international corporations, yet each focuses on providing support and assistance to people struggling with addictive disorders. Their continued support and involvement has enabled the Symposium to continue to offer the broadest, most challenging education at very cost-effective rates. We welcome you to become part of the C4 Recovery Solutions family.

C4 is excited to announce the debut of the heART and Science of Addiction workshops in collaboration with the Pacific Southwest ATTC to focus specifically on emerging research and its impacts and application for the addiction professional. We offer a special debt of gratitude to our Collaborators as well as our Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze Patrons, who with their generous support and underwriting, allow us to continue to provide you with the best return on your investment of time, energy and money.
