Last month, In the Rooms and Seeking Integrity Treatment Centers presented an online Super Saturday Recovery Summit. The event was an overwhelming success, with three experts on recovery discussing and answering questions on topics related to both early and longer-term sobriety and healing. Approximately 500 people attended each of the three sessions. In response, we are making the recovery summit a monthly event, with our next summit set for Saturday, May 16.
Presenters at this month’s Super Saturday Recovery Summit include Dr. David Fawcett, Rachel Levy, and Lulu Cook.
