Each month, In the Rooms and Seeking Integrity Treatment Centers present an online Super Saturday Recovery Summit. These events have proven to be an overwhelming success, with three experts on recovery discussing and answering questions on topics related to both early and longer-term sobriety and healing.
Our next Super Saturday Recovery Summit is set for Saturday, November 21st. Presenters at this month’s summit include Kelley Gunter, Dr. Stephen Dansiger, and Ken Page.
