NHS Substance Misuse Providers Alliance 2019 conference

NHS SMPA Conference 2019: Alcohol Treatment Reduced Demand or More Hidden Harm?


9th September 2019 – Sheffield Hallam University

Price: NHS Substance Misuse Providers Alliance  Early Bird Ticket price of £60 special will be available until the 21st June, 2019.

After this date, Standard Entry tickets will be available for £80 per person. Tickets include lunch, refreshments, access to all talks and the opportunity to attend one of the three workshops.


This year’s conference will bring together a range of expert speakers who will be sharing their innovations and expertise, offering insight and reflections on how we can more effectively engage and then provide support and treatment for those negatively affected by their use of alcohol. This includes those directly affected, but also people who are affected by someone else’s drinking.

Looking at this from both the perspective of the population and as individuals, how do we address the fact that we know the number of alcohol users who access services is far less than we would expect and how do we reverse and ensure we have the capacity to meet this need?

This NHS Substance Misuse Providers Alliance conference will include presentations and workshops from experts in this area of work alongside examples of best practice.
