  • The great thing about iCAAD is that you dive into the world of addiction care, you can talk to anybody who’s in this business and it’s great because everybody has so much knowledge about what’s happening and what’s going on. You can have a really good conversation about what’s happening in the industry and what’s relevant for the times. It was great to be here.’
