"Choosing Recovery Every Day" - Recovery Month Conference  (11901)

09/10/2014 8:30 AM - 09/10/2014 12:00 PM

For many decades addiction was studied measuring treatment failures, recidivism, and overdoses after treatment. Current research indicates that 4.1 million people annually achieve recovery, and roughly half from 12-step and community-based organizations.
Addiction is treatable, long-term abstinence is possible, and recovery does happen. Long-term total abstinence from mind changing, mood altering illicit substances is possible. Where once addiction was thought to be untreatable, we are celebrating the fact
that recovery is not only possible, but occurs at higher rates than previously thought. Join us this September during National Recovery Month. Featured Speakers: Danny Trejo, Actor/Producer and Dr. Reef Karim
