Rethinking Addiction: Trauma Responsive Conference
June 12th, 2023
Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, Traverse City Michigan
100 Grand Traverse Village Blvd, Acme, MI 49610
About The Conference
The purpose of Rethinking Addiction is to bring together citizens from all facets of our community to work on the most effective, impactful strategies and initiatives related to the public health crisis of addiction.
Together we're currently engaged in creating stronger, deeper connections between non-profits, service providers, and those in recovery. We're also assisting to build connections with local coalitions that support the work being done in the substance use disorder field. We are collaborating to create region-wide initiatives that will better educate the community on how we can actively make the place we call home a true trauma responsive recovery community.
This year, our conference is focused on providing trauma informed care and trauma responsive treatment for individuals that provide SUD interventions. Our strategies are aimed at family supports, peer supports, clinicians, therapists, court staff, and medical professionals. We are committed to creating resources and infrastructure that provide safe interactions for those in our community who need a place to turn during recovery and beyond.
