About the 2017 Cutting Edge Conference

The Cutting Edge addictions conference is New Zealand’s key addiction treatment gathering providing an excellent opportunity for the addiction sector to get together, network, and learn about and embrace innovative thinking and practice.

Dates: Wednesday 6th to Saturday 9th September 2017
Location: Te Papa (Wellington)
Cost: $590 for dapaanz members, $680 for non-members and $280 for fulltime students. Day tickets also available and an early bird discount is available until 31st July 2017.

This year’s theme is Addiction is Everybody’s Business - we all have a role to play; whether we are an addiction practitioner, a manager, a peer support worker or are working in primary care.

This theme focuses on how we create an integrated system of care that is responsive to people’s circumstances, environment and their life stage. It seeks to increase the interface between key players across the sector including addictions services, primary care, and specialist services like OST and services to offienders so that the person or family is at the centre – rather than the service.
