On October 23 and 24, Merakey’s Staffing Services participated in the 2020 Virginia Society of Addiction Medicine’s (VASAM) Annual Conference, which was held virtually this year due to the pandemic. The conference enables networking with colleagues in addiction medicine and increases public awareness in Virginia about problems related to addiction.
Merakey’s virtual booth at the conference was a great way to promote our newest program, Merakey Parkside Recovery in Petersburg, Virginia, which is planning to open in November. Merakey Parkside Recovery of VA will offer Medication Assisted Treatment in an outpatient and intensive outpatient setting. Virtual attendees at the conference included Addictions Medical Professionals from throughout Virginia and the Mid-Atlantic states. The conference was a good opportunity to recruit for available positions and to create relationships for the future.
