This will be the business meeting of the Addiction Special Interest Group (SIG). The mission of the SIG is to provide a forum for students, practitioners, and researchers who have an interest in studying and applying behavior analysis to understand, prevent, and treat addiction. The Addiction SIG is an organization for behavior analysts and others who are interested in understanding, preventing, and treating misuse of licit and illicit drugs and other commodities (e.g., alcohol, nicotine, stimulants, opioids, internet, smartphones, food) and associated psychosocial problems (e.g., psychiatric comorbidities, unemployment, poverty). The purpose of this inaugural meeting will be to: (1) provide an overview of the SIG’s mission, (2) discuss ongoing and future activities of the SIG, (3) develop plans to increase membership within the SIG, and (4) encourage feedback on SIG activities and future directions. All interested conference attendees are welcome to attend this meeting.
