April 16-20 2008, Vancouver, BC

Cracked but not Broken is a three day international conference
hosted by UBC in collaboration with the Centre of Health
Evaluation and Outcome Sciences (CHEOS) and the UBC
Department of Psychiatry. The conference will bring together
experts and stakeholders from various continents, cultures, and
disciplines to share their unique experiences and solutions on
stimulant abuse. Focusing on the particular vulnerabilities in
youth, the conference will examine pregnancy and stimulant use,
concurrent disorders, physical and mental illness associated with
stimulant use, and the best evidence-based pharmacological and psychosocial treatments for
adolescents. For more information on the conference and how to register, click here (PDF).
