OUR ARCHIVED EVENTS

Recover to Live

 

Special notice to Recover to Live Event attendees:

 

We have just learned of the sudden loss of Mr. Christopher Kennedy Lawford who passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday evening. We extend our deepest sympathy to his family and friends.

 

Nic Sheff has graciously agreed on short notice to be our special guest for this year's event. He is the son of Roads to Recovery's 2017 speaker, David Sheff. Nic's heartbreaking and inspiring struggle with addiction is the story
of Beautiful Boy, a major motion picture starring Timothée Chalamet as Nic and Steve Carrell as
his father, David. The film, already generating Oscar buzz in advance of its October 2018 release,

is based on Nic's New York Times bestselling memoir, Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines

and David's bestseller Beautiful Boy. 

Sharing an unglamorized, authentic
and heart-touching story of substance use and recovery

that is deeply rooted in mental illness,

Nic has been recognized as "a life-changing speaker."

Recovery for Life! An Evening with Legendary NFL Linebacker Thomas “Hollywood” Henderson

Please Join our Presenting Sponsors Don & Carol Banker and

 

along with our Recovery Trailblazer Sponsors

 

in presenting…

 

Recovery for Life!
An Evening with
Legendary NFL Linebacker
Thomas “Hollywood” Henderson

 

Thomas Henderson says that “Hollywood” died on November 8, 1983, the date he began his recovery journey. Now, over 32 years later, his story inspires more than ever. The legendary linebacker was a first-round draft pick of the Dallas Cowboys who played in three Super Bowls his first four years, including taking his team to the Championship in Superbowl XII.
He later became the first NFL player to disclose his addiction, seek treatment and return to pro football. In his book, In Control: The Rebirth of an NFL Legend, Mr. Henderson says, “Slowly, people are giving recovery the patience, respect and credibility it deserves.”

He also says, “To anyone suffering from alcoholism or drug addiction, I say this: if Thomas Henderson can get sober and stay sober, anyone can. If you have made serious mistakes in your life, you can change the outcome over time.”  Please join us for an inspiring and entertaining celebration of Recovery for Life!

The Joys of Recovery! Recovery Enhancement

Recovery Enhancement Workshop

About the Workshop

Much of the focus of addiction treatment has been on the disease concept and relapse prevention. Little has been done to explore and celebrate the positive aspects of recovery. What’s in it for a person with addiction to get sober? What’s so great about recovery?
This workshop explores the joys of recovery and the ways to achieve them. We will look at recovery enhancement in five aspects: physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual. Besides building a strong rationale for recovery enhancement, specific techniques are presented drawing from a variety of approaches including Positive Psychology, Mindfulness, Solution-Oriented Therapy, and Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Techniques such as future-pacing, time-line therapy, Core Transformation, self-hypnosis, deep relaxation, guided imagery, and the sobriety miracle question are taught, giving participants tools they can use immediately with their clients and peers.

The Language of Addiction and Recovery: Harmful, Helpful or Both?

Workshop description

For more than two centuries addicted and recovering people in America have been the object of language created by others. This language is ill-suited to accurately portray their experience or to serve as a catalyst for change…

When historically stigmatized peoples create movements to alter the conditions in which they are stigmatized, they often begin with processes of renaming… replacing others’ labels with words of their own choosing… William White

2600 Memorial Ave., Suite 107
Lynchburg, VA 24501
