The top award, one of four awards Long-Term Living received for 2011 content, recognized its journalistic achievement for the story “Hurricane Irene Tests Healthcare Disaster Response Plans.”
Long-Term Living also earned a Silver Award for Best Special Supplement, Annual or Buyer’s Guide for its 2011 Industry Guide; a Silver Award for Best Profile (“Rehab with Heart”) and a Bronze Award for Best E-Newsletter (October 14, 2011).
Two of Long-Term Living’s sister publications won multiple awards as well: Behavioral Healthcare won a Gold Award for Best Case History and a Bronze Award for Best Profile. Addiction Professional won a Gold Award for Best Use of Social Media and a Silver Award for Best Opening Spread or Page: Photo.
For the third consecutive year, Behavioral Healthcare magazine has been recognized by the American Society of Healthcare Publication Editors (ASHPE) with the Society’s Gold Award for editorial excellence and achievement in the field of healthcare publishing for the year 2011.
Behavioral Healthcare earned 2011 ASHPE awards in two categories.
A Gold Award for Best Case History for the story titled “Right place, right time, right approach,” (Nov/Dec 2011) that traced how a modest program to halt inappropriate incarcerations and psychiatric hospitalizations in Bexar County, Texas evolved into a nationally recognized model for collaborative, community-based systems of care.
A Bronze Award for Best Profile for the story titled “Patience…Patients,” (Jan/Feb 2011), that profiled how Universal Health Systems positioned itself to assume, via acquisition, the top position among US inpatient psychiatric hospital organizations when the previous market leader, Psychiatric Solutions, Inc. encountered financial challenges in 2009 and 2010.
Previously, Behavioral Healthcare won a Gold Award (Best editorial) and a Silver Award (Best Special Report) for 2010 work and a 2009 Gold Award for Best Special Report.
“These awards reflect the efforts of a great editorial, production, and publishing team,” said Dennis Grantham, Editor-in-Chief, Behavioral Healthcare. “We’re proud to be part of an organization, the Vendome Group, that is dedicated to editorial excellence.”

Addiction Professional magazine has been recognized by the American Society of Healthcare Publication Editors (ASHPE) for editorial excellence and achievement in the field of healthcare publishing. Addiction Professional earned awards in two categories for calendar year 2011.
Addiction Professional’s LinkedIn Group Discussion on the debate involving 12-Step and medication-assisted approaches to addiction treatment was named the Gold Award winner for Best Use of Social Media (July/Aug 2011). The LinkedIn discussion grew out of an Addiction Professional article in which an addiction medicine specialist criticized fellow physicians’ perspectives on effective treatment.
Addiction Professional also earned a Silver Award for Best Opening Page or Spread for the photo entitled Sober Living with a Kick (Jan/Feb 2011). The opening spread depicted the discipline exhibited by young men participating in mixed martial arts training as part of their continuing care at an innovative sober-living program in Connecticut.
“It is with great pride that I accept these awards on behalf of the Addiction Professional editorial team and the entire Vendome organization,” said Gary Enos, Editor, Addiction Professional. “The team’s hard work and dedication to editorial excellence is reflected in this achievement.”

Addiction Professional editor Gary Enos to receive the first National Association of Recovery Residences Recognition Award at NARR’s second annual Conference on Recovery Residences
NEW YORK, NY – May 1, 2012 – The National Association of Recovery Residences (NARR) will recognize Gary Enos, Editor-in-Chief of Addiction Professional, with an award during their annual Conference on Recovery Residences in May. Enos is being given this honor in recognition of his significant contributions to the field of recovery residences, specifically through reporting and sharing his industry expertise through print and online media channels and fostering the creation of NARR.
Beth Fisher, President of NARR, stated: “NARR and a National Standard for recovery residences – long needed in the field - became a reality in September 2011. Quite simply, we have Gary Enos to thank for that. He facilitated a ‘gathering place’ for recovery residence operators and stakeholders through the use of media…he brought to light a service niche that has long been under the radar – and introduced recovery residences to the industry. We have claimed a legitimate, professional space on the continuum of recovery services through his contributions – in short; he has facilitated significant, positive change for the entire field.”
The conference is being held in Washington D.C. at Donovan House from May 10-12, 2012. More information on this event can be found at www.narronline.com.

NEW YORK (February 7, 2012) – Vendome Group announces that the National Association of Recovery Residences (NARR) is partnering with Addiction Professional. The magazine and its recently redesigned Web site, www.addictionpro.com, will serve as a forum for NARR members to share recovery principles and practice standards related to high-quality recovery residences. In addition, NARR will continue its strategic partnership with Vendome on the National Conference on Addiction Disorders (NCAD; http://www.addictionpro.com/ncad-conference/national-conference-addiction-disorders-2012,) being held in Orlando September 28-October 2.
“We are delighted to be collaborating with NARR,” says Mark Fried, Vendome executive vice president. “This partnership fits perfectly with our mission to share what’s working throughout the entire spectrum of addiction recovery services.”
“NARR is thrilled to partner with Addiction Professional to have the opportunity to contribute and educate. Recovery residences are a vital part of the support continuum as our field shifts from an acute care model to recovery management,” says Beth Fisher, NARR president. “We look forward to increasing visibility for an area of addiction recovery services that has historically ‘flown under the radar.’ There are many, many quality recovery residence operations that adhere to standards and professional practice, yet it is the sub-standard outfits that tend to get press attention. We are grateful for the foresight of Vendome in providing a forum for best practice and shared experience for all levels of recovery residences.”
Fisher, who is on Addiction Professional’s editorial board, was featured on the cover of the May/June 2010 issue of Addiction Professional (http://www.addictionpro.com/article/raising-bar-recovery-residences), and currently blogs at http://www.addictionpro.com/contributors/beth-fisher.
NARR is part of a growing list of leading field stakeholders partnering with Vendome to share addiction treatment and recovery best practices. For more information on NARR, visit http://narronline.com/. For more information on Vendome Group, visit www.vendomegrp.com.
