Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) July 16, 2013 – From July 22-24, 2013, Robert Weiss, LCSW, CSAT-S, author, clinician, founder of the Sexual Recovery Institute, and Senior Vice President of Clinical Development for Elements Behavioral Health, will speak at the 2nd International Conference and Exhibition on Addiction Research & Therapy at Embassy Suites in Las Vegas. The theme of this year’s conference is “Exploring the Latest Research Advancements that are Shaping Addiction Treatment.”

Scientific researchers, professionals, students and business executives from across the globe will gather to learn about current research and treatment approaches for the full spectrum of addictive disorders from some of the world’s leading experts. Weiss will deliver a plenary talk followed by a half-day breakout session on the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of sex and porn addictions and related intimacy disorders.

“Sex and porn addictions have existed for decades, but the easy accessibility of social networks, adultery websites, virtual chats, smartphone sex apps and other online media are presenting evolving new challenges for those with addictive sexual disorders as well as the professionals treating them,” Weiss said.

The conference is hosted by OMICS Group, a leading scientific event organizer that publishes hundreds of open access journals and organizes international conferences in all of the major disciplines of science and technology. Its mission is to spread knowledge across the world and accelerate discoveries in the areas of science, medicine and technology.
