Addiction Professional editor Gary Enos received the annual Michael Q. Ford Journalism Award from the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers (NAATP) this week at the association's conference in Carlsbad, Calif. The honor was presented at an awards luncheon held in conjunction with NAATP's annual meeting on May 18.

Enos, who has been Addiction Professional's editor since the publication's founding in 2003, was cited for guiding the coverage of contentious but pivotal issues affecting the treatment industry, including organizational ethics challenges that have become a significant focus among NAATP leaders. His nomination for the award stated that the magazine has promoted open and honest dialogue about the industry without taking sides on the key debates shaping the field, including the division between 12-Step and medication-assisted treatment approaches.

Enos has worked as a writer and editor covering addiction and mental health topics since 1994. He is a graduate of Brown University and Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism.    



This is a well-deserved acknowledgement of your contributions to the field and your efforts to disseminate information and opinions that have helped us all improve understanding of our collective efforts.

Well done, Gary!

We think Gary is awesome and couldn't agree more, johndemiranda! His keen eye for trends and provocative writing skills are a coup for us!
-Julie Miller, Editor in Chief, Behavioral Healthcare

Thanks for sharing the info. As far as I read about Gary Enos, he's really a good editor and he deserves the annual Michael Q. Ford Journalism Award. I'm quite inspired by his strong personality. It's not like any ordinary person can get such awards but just few person acquire those qualities. Every one involves in certain professions but in order to get success it matter how you are working. Some courses/training may helpful to build such personalities. Executive Coaching. Hope for a more successful career for Gray Enos. Good luck.
