Excellence in Treatment Awards

2020 Awards


Starting in 2020, the “Excellence in Treatment” award will recognize the most effective addiction treatment programs regardless of whether they define success by complete abstinence or by whether their patients successfully achieve their self-defined treatment goals.  The rules for the 2020 Excellence in Treatment award may be downloaded here.  Three levels of awards will be given:

Gold:  Top 5% of all applicants

Silver:  Top 6% to 15% of applicants

Bronze:  Top 16% to 33% of applicants

Winners of the gold, silver or bronze awards will be publicly announced at Southworth Associates' Perspectives conference on October 26, 2020.  The identity of all other award applicants will remain confidential.  

Applications must be received by Tuesday, September 15, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. PST.  You must apply online here:
