Recovery Across the Lifespan

Recovery Across the Lifespan

We all have challenges across our lifespan. How do the challenges of treating addiction or beating an addiction differ at each stage in the life course? How do I know whether I need recovery or not? Do we need different tools for recovery to address each stage in life?  All addictions share certain traits and challenges. In this presentation and discussion, we’ll explore the “addict” inside each of us, discuss the core struggle all individuals wrestling with addictions have in common, and investigate the challenges recovering individuals face in each stage of the life course. Whether you’re an individual recovering from an addiction, a treatment professional, a student, or a person coping with an addicted family member or friend, all people face obstacles -- right here, right now -- and we always will. Together, we’ll explore ways to overcome obstacles in our lives as we consider new ways to support others as they overcome theirs - no matter how old they are when they start."

Keynote speaker Mark Bryan is the author or co-author of successful books, workshops, and training materials that address several “recovery” issues, including creativity, family relationships, and money.
