The Southern California Recovery Summit

Friday October 16, 2009
8:00 AM – 3:30 PM

Loyola Marymount University
Los Angeles, CA 90045

Conference overview

Recovery Summit is fast becoming one of Southern California's most
prominent addiction conferences. Now in its third year, the Summit has
drawn experts in the field from around the country.

This exceptional program is devoted to recovery
from alcoholism and drug addiction, presented from many viewpoints, and
focused on the experiences of people working in the field. "Recovery"
as a topical area is deceptively broad. Presenters and panelists
include psychologists, sober living providers, physicians, homeless
services providers, interventionists, social workers and
representatives of the criminal justice field.

The idea for this conference originated in
discussions about the intersection of different professional
disciplines and personal experiences as they bear on the recovery from
addiction. The conclusion was that much could be gained from a forum
where participants from different fields could meet to discuss common
issues, share experiences and seek solutions.

Who should attend?

If addiction and recovery matter to you, either
personally or professionally, the Summit is a good place to be. You'll
recognize several of the panelists and speakers.
