Announcing Life of Purpose as the Platinum Event Underwriter for the 2015 North Texas Recovery Conference

Life of Purpose Treatment is excited to announce that they will be the Platinum event underwriter for the 2015 North Texas Recovery Conference.

The North Texas Recovery Conference is a national three-day event that brings together students in recovery, future professionals, current professionals and industry leaders at the University of North Texas. Held in conjunction with National Recovery Month, the 3rd annual North Texas Recovery Conference runs from September 23rd – 25th, 2015. This year’s events plan to educate local students and communities, retain and recruit behavioral health professionals, and reduce stigma in the community, utilizing the 2015 conference theme: “New Paradigms in Recovery”.

This year’s conference is unique in its focus on emerging innovations in the behavioral health treatment and recovery field. The conference features three distinct tracks that will engage different segments of our target audience. These include: Student and young adult development, the behavioral health workforce, and recovery to practice.  Each track will feature nine different sessions and workshops that range from lecture style breakouts to experiential activities. The conference will also host four keynote speakers – three in the early morning sessions each day, and the fourth on Friday evening. One of the four keynote speakers will be Andrew Burki, MSW, CEO and Founder of Life of Purpose Treatment.  Another will be Dr. John Graham, MA, MSW, PhD, Professor of Social Work and Director of the School of Social Work at Florida Atlantic University. 

New to the conference this year is a professional workforce career fair. In partnership with the University of North Texas Career Services Center there will be students from the rehabilitation department, social work department, as well as other helping profession’s degree seeking students, meet and greet with all of our exhibitors in a controlled fashion. This fair will take place on Friday, September 25th.

The 2014 North Texas conference incurred high engagement both with students and professionals in the field, with over 250 attendees. National partners in the past have included NAADAC, SAMHSA, Young People in Recovery, Transforming Youth Recovery, NASW, and the Association of Recovery Schools.
