Santa Ana, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/21/2017 --BioCorRx Inc. (OTCMKTS:BICX) (the "Company"), a developer and provider of advanced solutions in the treatment of alcohol and opioid addictions, today announced that the Company will have an Exhibit at the California American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Review Course in Addiction Medicine in San Francisco, California on August 24-27th.
The California Society of Addiction Medicine's Addiction Medicine Review Course is the largest gathering of addiction medicine physicians in the Western U.S. More than 800 physician attendees are expected to attend, from a variety of practice settings.
Brady Granier, CEO, President, and Director, stated, "We are looking forward to attending the CSAM conference this week. In addition to the top addiction specialists, many of the attendees will be primary care physicians who want to integrate addiction treatment in their practices. This conference is a great opportunity to showcase our BioCorRx® Recovery Program, which enables medical professionals to treat patients in their office with medications like naltrexone, while also offering them outpatient behavioral therapy via our turnkey program. We feel that primary care physicians will play a major role in combating the opioid epidemic in the near future and it is important for them to have the right tools available, like the BioCorRx Recovery Program, to help their patients who suffer from substance use disorder."
