Addiction is a pandemic in our society. Almost every day we hear about the tragedies of those who die from this disease. And let’s not forget that addiction goes far beyond drugs and alcohol into food, relationships, sex and money issues.
Tommy Rosen, addiction expert and yoga instructor with more than 20 years of recovery, is hosting and producing the Recovery 2.0:Beyond Addiction conference, which explores cutting-edge, inspirational, spiritual, medical and practical approaches to treating and overcoming addictions of all kinds. "Addiction is a treatable dis-ease," Rosen states. "And it is possible to thrive in recovery. There are so many modalities out there that support recovery. People just need to know."
The semi-annual online addiction and recovery conference, “Recovery 2.0: Beyond Addiction,” will be held September 28 – October 2, 2013. Via streaming interviews, this free-to-attend online conference showcases the varied perspectives and wisdom of 35 thought-leaders in the field of addiction, recovery and personal transformation.
Sponsors of the global conference include Hazelden, one of the world's most respected alcohol and drug addiction treatment centers, InTheRooms.com, the world’s largest social network for people in recovery, Faces and Voices of Recovery, a D.C.-based recovery advocacy and community organization and The Kripalu Center, which is among the nation's top educational institutions for personal and spiritual development.
The conference includes conversations with Dr. Gabor Maté, Dr. Lissa Rankin, Gabrielle Bernstein, David Wolfe, Mastin Kipp, Nick Ortner and many more. Speaker bios and presentation topics can be found at http://recovery2point0.com
Rosen continued, “I’m thrilled to have these amazing partners and presenters. It’s so hopeful that they have all come together to add their voices to the conference at no cost to the attendee. We are committed to doing what we can to help stack the odds in favor of a successful recovery and life for anyone struggling with addiction.”
