Father Martin’s Ashley, the non-profit alcoholism and drug addiction treatment center, announced that nominations for the 2012 Father Joseph C. Martin, S.S. Award for Professional Excellence are now being accepted.
The Father Martin Award is given annually to a professional who embodies Father Martin’s legacy of education, treatment with dignity and support of 12 Step recovery. Last year’s winner was late author and speaker, Earnie Larsen, and there have been eight other award honorees to date.
This year’s award will be presented at a special award presentation during the National Conference on Addictive Disorders (NCAD) in Orlando, Fla., on Sept. 30. Last year’s conference drew more than 1,000 attendees and is the ideal venue for recognizing an addiction professional who has made a significant impact on the field, patients and families. The 2012 award honoree will be invited to attend the conference to receive the award as the guest of Father Martin’s Ashley.
An independent committee of addiction and mental health professionals will review the nominations and select this year’s winner.
