The American Association for the Treatment of Opioid Dependence, Inc., (AATOD) was founded in 1984 to promote the growth and development of opioid treatment services. The association currently represents 20 states and the District of Columbia, providing treatment to individuals in approximately 700 programs. Committed to enhancing the quality of patient care, the American Association for the Treatment of Opioid Dependence, in conjunction with the American Society of Addiction Medicine, developed clinical guidelines to assist individual practitioners and policy makers in the development of effective opioid treatment services. In addition, the association focuses on federal, state, and program specific treatment policies; advocates on behalf of affected individuals and their families; engages in professional and public education; and promotes the coordination of and communication among opioid treatment programs. The association also convenes a national conference every 18 months for researchers, treatment personnel, and policy makers. The association also provides a variety of materials including fact sheets and brochures, and maintains a web site with information about opioid treatment for patients and practitioners, national advisories and policy statements, news from the states, and conference/symposium registration materials.
