Welcome message from dapaanz, the hosts of the event:

Nau mai

On behalf of the Organising Committee and dapaanz Executive Board, it is my pleasure to invite you to join us for Cutting Edge Te toka tū moana Conference, being held in Ōtepoti Dunedin from 08 – 11 September 2021.

Our national conference is New Zealand’s key addiction treatment gathering, providing an excellent opportunity for the addiction sector to get together, network, learn and embrace innovative thinking and practice. Our 2020 conference was postponed, so this year’s Cutting Edge is eagerly awaited.

Cutting Edge is hosted by dapaanz, the professional association for people working in addiction treatment. We foster excellence in addiction practice, and support an ethical and culturally responsive addiction workforce that helps people who may be struggling with addictions or who use substances to receive high-quality, effective help.Registrations open soon, until then save the dates in your calendar, and plan to attend the Conference

We look forward to working with you and welcoming you to Cutting Edge in September 2021!
