About the Event

Interested in the most modern and up-to-date tools to acquire and maintain sobriety - and to live a fulfilling life?

Join us for the third annual SMART Recovery Regional Conference: Tools to Achieve a Balanced Life - on Saturday, October 27, 2018, at St. Philip's Episcopal Church in Laurel, Maryland.

The keynote speakers are two of the nation's leading experts in the causes and best practices in the treatment of substance use disorders: 

Dr. John F. Kelly, Ph.D., ABPP, is the Elizabeth R. Spallin Associate Professor of Psychiatry in Addiction Medicine at Harvard Medical School, and Director of the Recovery Research Institute at the Massachusetts General Hospital.

Dr. Billina Shaw, MD, FAPA, is the Medical Director of Mental Health Services of the Prince George's County, Maryland, Health Department.

Additional speakers will focus on which of the many SMART Recovery Tools work best for addressing all aspects of life challenges.

Breakout sessions, including one expressly for the professional community, conclude the conference.

The SMART Recovery Regional Conference: Tools to Achieve a Balanced Life is open to everyone interested in SMART Recovery, including SMART Recovery meeting attendees, facilitators and volunteers - and all addiction treatment professionals.  

This is an opportunity for professionals to learn how to integrate the tools of SMART Recovery into their practices - and 5 Level B / Level Two CEUs will be provided to professionals who register and attend.  

You will also receive a complimentary copy of Maia Svalavitz’s landmark book Unbroken Brain: A Revolutionary New Way of Understanding Addiction (an $18 value)

Sponsoring organizations include Kolmac Outpatient Treatment Centers, Congruent Counseling Services, Hope House Treatment Centers, Recovery Centers of American, Sandstone Care and Serenity Acres Treatment Centers.

This event is an outstanding once-a-year opportunity for individuals interested in beginning recovery and individuals in recovery - together with the professionals who guide them - to learn critical tools to leave behind a life dependent on addictive substances and behaviors - and to live a full and fulfilling life.
