The Los Angeles Recovery Summit

Presented by
The Los Angeles County Sober Living Coalition
The Sober Living Network

Saturday October 13, 2007

Hosted by
The Loyola Marymount University Addiction Counseling Program

The program is a day devoted to topics concerning recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction, presented from many viewpoints, and focused on the experiences of people working in the field. Presenters and panelists include psychologists, treatment professionals, sober living providers, physicians, educators and representatives of the criminal justice field.

The idea for this conference originated in discussions about the intersection of sober living with other elements in the continuum of recovery from addiction. The conclusion was that much could be gained from a forum where participants from different fields could meet to discuss common issues, share experiences and seek solutions.

The "Summit" part of the title is the day's theme –a meeting of informed minds from diverse backgrounds to discuss matters of mutual concern. The program will present experience from a variety of disciplines, with the common theme of improving our collective understanding of addiction and recovery.
