Event Description: 
The Radical Recovery Summit is an exciting gathering of leaders in the recovery field sharing their innovative approaches to the exploding epidemic of addiction in the many forms it takes. Register to watch online free the weekend of September 23 and 24th. http://linktrack.info/.2nz16 Existing models of addiction recovery are notoriously ineffective. Relapse rates of up to 90%, combined with surging rates of addiction and the opioid overdose crisis bring an urgency to improving the field of addiction treatment. People are scared, frustrated, and hungry for real change and healing. The Kiloby Center for Recovery's goal in hosting this is to bring together innovators in the field of recovery from addiction. We are thrilled to offer two dozen diverse and interesting interviews with leading people in this field. Themes are emerging through the interviews. One is the trauma, pain and stigma that drives the need to escape into addiction. We all see the importance of working with the energies and feelings in the body. Isolation and lack of social trust are common issues that we are overcoming through authentic connection and caring. Keynote speakers include Scott Kiloby (Kiloby Center for Recovery), John Dupuy (Integral Recovery, iAwake), Dr Gabor Mate (compassion, trauma and addiction), Nikki Myers (Yoga for 12 Step Recovery), Tommy Rosen (Recovery 2.0), Robert Weiss (Digital-age Intimacy), Pati Hernandez (Dartmouth College/Prison Arts project), Rick Hanson (Neuroscience and Happiness) and Richard Miller (iRest). Our speakers cover a broad range of innovative programs, hands-on work and radical perspectives. Please join us September 23rd and 24th. Scott Kiloby is hosting a live panel discussion at noon Eastern on the 23rd and the interviews are all free to watch that weekend.
