Multiple Pathways of Recovery Conference
May 2, 2016 @ 8:00 am - May 4, 2016 @ 12:00 pm
Stemming from the emerging field of recovery support services and the lingo of recovery community organizations, we often hear this phrase “Multiple Pathways of Recovery”. Do we really believe there are multiple pathways to the same destination? Or do we believe that our own personal pathway (or that of a loved one) is really the only one? Because it worked.
This conference is designed to educate us all on the many different pathways that people achieve recovery in modern times. These are methods, practices, rituals, programs, belief systems that foster long-term recovery. 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?
Together, we will explore Multiple Pathways of Recovery that maintain and sustain recovery. At this groundbreaking, one-of-a-kind conference, participants will attend keynotes and presentations on the “Anonymous” programs, the Red Road to Wellbriety, Medication-Assisted Recovery, Celebrate Recovery, SMART Recovery, LifeRing Secular Recovery, Physical Fitness Recovery, Faith-based Recovery, Women For Sobriety (WFS) and more. To our knowledge this will be the first time multiple pathways will be the focus of a major conference featuring so many leaders in the recovery field.
