Addiction Professional would like to announce that membership in its LinkedIn group has surpassed 12,000 members. The group, featuring discussions on topics important to practicing clinicians, reached the 11,000 milestone only 60 days prior.

"Through its robust LinkedIn presence, Addiction Professional has the strongest social media presence of any publication serving substance use treatment clinicians," said Doug Edwards, publisher of Addiction Professional. "Many of our discussions receive more than 50 comments, indicating that the group provides a forum for rich and engaging conversations."

Addiction Professional's LinkedIn group is just one component of the community the publication has built for the field. Other venues for conversation include its Facebook page, Twitter presence, Web site, the Addiction Professional Webinar Series, the Addiction Professional Panel Series, and the National Conference on Addiction Disorders.

In 2012, the American Society of Healthcare Publication Editors recognized Addiction Professional's LinkedIn group with a Gold Award for 2011, for best use of social media.
