The 2017 Conference was a great success and we are planning now for the 2018 Conference. For your reference information about past conferences is posted on the Conference Archives webpage.

Conference participants fall into two broad groups;

  • Front-line staff including DSWs, clinicians; therapist and case-workers

Scent-Free Considerations

The OADD conference is a scent-free event. In consideration of those who are sensitive/allergic to the chemicals in fragrances, please refrain from using perfume/cologne and other scented products.


OADD understands that different terminology is used by different service sectors and that all of us experience labels appropriate to each situation at various times in our lives. Participant questions regarding terminology will be directed back to presenters.
