Presenter Information

All Rise will host RISE24, the world's largest conference on addiction, mental health, and justice reform, May 22-25, 2024 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA. RISE, drawing 7,000 attendees each year, brings together leaders from all models of treatment courts, the recovery community, law enforcement, veteran service organizations, legislators, and other key stakeholders to learn the latest evidence-based practices for serving individuals with substance use and mental health disorders in the justice system.

All Rise is seeking session proposals that present best practices in service delivery, collaboration, and justice programming that enhance outcomes in treatment courts, including adult, juvenile, family, and reentry drug treatment courts, DWI courts, tribal healing to wellness courts, and veterans treatment courts. All Rise strongly encourages proposals for sessions that present research findings and their impact on practice, feature data analysis, and highlight evidence-based practice implementation.

Priority Topic Areas

While All Rise will accept and schedule sessions that cover a wide range of topics, we are especially interested in justice reform research-based programming, law enforcement, the unique needs of justice-involved veterans, family-centered practices, pretrial services, community supervision, reentry services, equity and inclusion, effective addiction and mental health treatment, housing, employment, and vocational approaches, and long-term recovery management.
