C4 Events

C4 Events has been providing behavioral health professionals with unmatched networking and learning experiences for more than 30 years. Our five annual national events include the Cape Cod Symposium on Addictive Disorders (CCSAD), the West Coast Symposium on Addictive Disorders (WCSAD), the Clinical Overview of the Recovery Experience (CORE), Evolution of Addiction Treatment (EVOLUTION), and the Police, Treatment, and Community Collaborative (PTACC). In addition to these conferences, C4 Events also hosts free educational webinars for behavioral health professionals.


CCSAD, a four-day event, is dedicated to continuing education and networking in the field of behavioral health, draws hundreds of regional, national, and international participants, lecturers and faculty. CCSAD combines workshops and seminars on timely industry topics with an unmatched showcase of the industry’s products and services. Your presence at CCSAD will help maintain and increase your competitive edge in the behavioral health industry.


Like its sister conference, the Cape Cod Symposium on Addictive Disorders (CCSAD), WCSAD is a catalyst for forging new bonds, creating new referral networks and generating significant return on investments for exhibitors and supporters. At WCSAD, expect to reach Behavioral or Allied Health professionals, CEOs, Presidents and Vice Presidents, Directors, other C-Suite executives, Physicians, Psychologists, Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists, Alcohol and Drug Counselors, Mental Health Counselors, Collegiate Recovery and Professional Monitoring Organizations, EAPs, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Pharmacists, Peer Support, Recovery Coaches, Sober Living Operators and staff.


EVOLUTION brings the most forward-thinking and effective therapeutic interventions and approaches directly to those that treat addiction. Since 2011, the conference has grown from 350 to over 650 attendees. As the largest addiction treatment conference in the Los Angeles area, and with CE credit issued from the psychologist level down, EVOLUTION has become a fixture within the professional treatment community.


CORE highlights the critical importance of providing individualized treatment and presents new options for productively integrating useful clinical tools into a larger recovery-oriented treatment culture while maintaining passion for delivering advanced behavioral, addiction, and therapeutic services. It is an opportunity for addiction professionals to advance the principles of client-centered treatment with a strong clinical foundation as well as to be a forum to increase the collective understanding of the full continuum of recovery processes. Our goal is to improve outcomes by better integrating personalized evidence-based treatment services that allow individuals, families, and professionals to choose the most appropriate treatment.


The PTACC conference, a training and technical assistance conference, is the second of two annual conferences devoted to the development and support of pre-arrest deflection (PAD) efforts across the United States, and building the treatment and funding capacity to sustain them. The first year featured work force development for 30 or more jurisdictions from around the nation led by members of the Police, Treatment, and Community (PTACC) Collaborative as well as peers from the fields of law enforcement, behavioral health and social services, research, and community advocacy.
