Recovery Capital Conference: Not Just For Professionals
Our counsellors will be there. So will up-and-coming psychology students, media, and treatment centre staffers. Aurora will be there too, as sponsors.
It is the annual Recovery Capital Conference set for September 4, 2020, from 10 a.m to 5 p.m. Winnipeg time. Yes, COVID-19 or not, it is going ahead, this time virtually.
Lives are counting on it.
If you are in recovery, why should you care about this virtual conference anyway?
For those who have made the break from active addiction into recovery, remembering the struggle is often at the forefront of their minds. It is on the minds of the people who attend the conference, too. They are trying to help others find recovery, just as you have.
The Recovery Capital Conference brings together some of the world’s leading researchers, scientists, clinicians and policymakers to explain the most contemporary, leading-edge solutions to addiction. They are searching for ways of helping those caught up in the world of substance use disorder and mental health issues. People just like you.
If your recovery was launched at Aurora, these are your people. They know that addiction and recovery are not just subjects to chat about around a coffee table. These are the leading experts, the teachers meeting with the students, the helpers, the people in the trenches. This is science meeting the spiritually inclined. This is the history of addiction treatment meeting the new direction.
Recovery Capital a new concept for many. It is based on a philosophy that the treatment of addiction is not a one-size-fits-all proposal.
Just as recovery capital is a new way of treating those who fight substance use, the recovery advocacy movement itself is all about ending the notion that addicts are a burden. It is all about ending stigma and promoting recovery.
Millions of people around the world are in recovery. If you are one of them or know someone who is, this conference will bring you up to speed on the latest approaches to treatment, blending evidence-based therapies with body-mind-spirit, fellowship and community connections.
We invite you to join us at the 2020 Recovery Capital Conference on Friday, September 4, 2020. Come by our virtual booth and say hello. We’d love to have you.
