Ladies and gentlemen, step right up and join us as we return to 19th century America.  A rumbling, steam engine train pulls into the station of small towns across America and out disembarks a troupe of acrobats, knife throwers, lions, and elephants all clad in colorful costumes. The circus has arrived!

This year, the annual TAAP Conference on Addiction Studies rolls into beautiful San Antonio, Texas to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this stellar symposium of continuing education on addiction, mental health, and related studies.  You won’t want to miss it because we can assure you that you will revel in the music of an old calliope, the smells of popcorn, peanuts and cotton candy, clowns by the dozen, and a carnival sideshow where you will have the time of your life. 

The Texas Association of Addiction Professionals is excited to welcome you back to the vibrant Alamo City and the beautiful Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Conference Center.  A tireless team of volunteers commit to over a year of planning and preparation to create this event for the over 800 participants, exciting special events and nationally recognized keynote speakers, exhibitors and sponsors that come from coast to coast, and much more.

And to properly celebrate fifty years of luminous history, we believe you deserve to have an amazing experience connecting with old friends and networking with new, the opportunity to gather new clinical and behavioral tools to use with your clients, and to most of all, HAVE FUN.  

So take your seat under the Big Top, grab a tasty funnel cake, and revel in being a part of the “Greatest Conference on Earth!"
