Multiple Pathways of Recovery Conference

The Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery (CCAR) is excited to present the Multiple Pathways of Recovery Conference, October 19-21, 2015 at the Mystic Marriott Hotel & Spa.

At this conference a variety of pathways used to foster long-term recovery from addictions will be discussed; they include methods, practices, programs, and belief systems. Pathways of recovery are not triggers or events that lead to someone initiating recovery: things like a car accident, the birth of a child, getting arrested, divorce, loss of a job, etc. These would be considered pathways to recovery (amazing what one simple preposition can do, isn't it?)

At this groundbreaking, one-of-a-kind conference, participants will attend both keynotes and workshops.

o Bill White, Slaying the Dragon: The History of Addiction Treatment & Recovery in America, (FL)
