(PRWEB) April 29, 2015
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.
