Addiction Conference: Boca Symposium

Cali Estes of The Addictions Academy Partnered with Charles Davis of Behavioral Health Network Resources to offer the Behavioral Health Education and Marketing Symposium.

The duo are kicking off their National tour of cities with the first stop of The Behavioral Health Education and Marketing Symposium in August in Boca Raton, Florida. This event will be unlike any other behavioral health event in existence. It provides not only networking and marketing opportunities for industry professionals but also educational opportunities for therapists and clinicians. The symposium offers a new and unique platform that combines learning, marketing and networking all in one.

“The best referrals come from the private clinicians,” Davis said.“Private therapists and clinicians are precisely the target market of drug and alcohol abuse treatment facilities, but behavioral health marketing events rarely attract them. I wanted to create an event that offered CEU’s and marketing all at once and filled the void.”

symposiumThe Behavioral Health Education & Marketing Symposium is the brain child of Charles Davis, CEO of Behavioral Health Network Resources. Davis has extensive experience as a Marketing Director with numerous addiction treatment centers and US Journal Training, which provides national addiction professional conferences, that enabled him to clearly see where there were voids in the education provided by addiction conferences, how centers are obtaining referrals, and the lack of marketing in the behavioral health field. Davis combined his experience with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in marketing to launch this major project.
Since entering the addictions field, Davis has built an impressive marketing arm with an email database list of over 60,000 addresses, has the largest following in the field on LinkedIn with over 20,000 addiction professionals, and a total reach on LinkedIn of 18,000,000! The missing component was offering NAADAC CEU’s, and Estes was able to provide that through The Addictions Academy.
“I wanted to team up with a pioneer like Charles Davis,“Estes said.“At The Addictions Academy we offer a much needed service to credential and standardize the industry. The Behavioral Health Education and Marketing Symposium is going to bring together the right key players and decision makers in the right platform. It is brilliant.”
Education and Marketing SymposiumClinicians who attend the Behavioral Health Education and Marketing Symposium are able to earn between 8 – 12 Continuing Education Unit credits in one day for the minimal entry fee of $99.00. The CEU’s are offered through NAADAC and transferrable to every state. LMHC, LMFT, LSW, PHD, and Drug and Alcohol Addiction Therapists will all benefit from the CEU’s being offered. Facility marketers will have a chance to network with a number of fresh, new referral sources and truly viable contacts.

The overall aim of the event is to create an experience that is both educational and enjoyable. Along with notable speakers such as Dr. Christopher LaRiche (Clinical Director of Lucida Treatment Center), Jonathan Benz (Clinical Director Three Sands Elements Property,) William McCormick (Medivance Billing Service Inc.) and Cali Estes (Founder of The Addictions Academy). In addition, there are a few giveaways including 10 free admissions to the Moments of Change Conference taking place from September 29th to October 2nd in Palm Beach, Florida, and a large flat-screen TV (valued at $1000).

The Behavioral Health Education and Marketing Symposium takes place on Wednesday, August 20, 2014 at Lakeside Terrace in Boca Raton, Florida from 8 am to 5 pm. The symposium is part of a nationwide series. The next event will be held in Houston, Texas in October 2014. For more details on future symposiums, please visit . 1.800.706.0318
