Welcome to the New York Society of Addiction Medicine’s website
The New York Society of Addiction Medicine (NYSAM) is an organization of physicians in New York State from all medical specialities, dedicated to understanding and preventing addiction problems and to improving addiction treatment. NYSAM is a State Chapter of the American Society of Addiction Medicine.
The site is less than a year old, but is already a useful resource. We are actively soliciting content from our members, so send us items for the News page, and please make use of our Classifieds section.
Many pages have related links and resources, in particular the Science journal. You'll find topical articles on the Public Policy page, where you can access policy materials such as NYSDOH bulletins, NYS legislation/bills, NYSAM memoranda and position papers, published articles, and more. The Upcoming page will help members stay informed of NYSAM events, CME and meetings. We are building contacts with Regional groups (New Jersey and New England) and welcome your submissions for addiction medicine-related groups, organizations, events and meetings.
More about the site
We envision the NYSAM website will: increase communication among the membership; streamline the distribution of important and time-sensitive news and information; increase interest in becoming a NYSAM member; offer advocacy tools; and, will generally be an indispensable membership resource.
We need feedback, ideas, and engagement. We believe this will continue to be a great member resource. Please bookmark us, visit often, contribute content, contact us and tell your colleagues about us. Keep an eye on your email inbox for updates, and if you'd like to get involved, please get in touch.
