Mackenzie has also been featured on the New York Times Bestsellers List for her memoir, High on Arrival; her second book, Hopeful Healing: Essays on Managing Recovery and Addiction, has been equally successful. This conference will also feature a several plenary speakers in addition to a variety of concurrent sessions intended to help participants to connect and find support as they explore the complex aspects of addiction, addiction prevention, and recovery. Based upon previous experience, we anticipate welcoming approximately 400 participants from the community.
