Changing the Norm

PRESENTED ON AUG 10, 2019
IN NEW WESTMINSTER @ VOL 23

Giuseppi Ganci, in his presentation, explains how he wants to change how people perceive the words "addiction" and "rehab". When those words come up (including: "asking for help") people often think doom and gloom; Giuseppi questions why it has to be that way and what can be done to change it.

Recovery transitions

BY DAVID DOUGLAS
@ VOL 16 ON JAN 18, 2019

David's presentation started with honoring his mothers life.  David's mom recently passed and he wanted to ensure the world knew how amazing a woman she was in her life.    David's talk transitioned into a history of his own life from being a young boy with hopes and dreams, all the way to being on the streets in his late 20's with no hope and dreams lost. His presentation followed his path to being a person in long term recovery from a substance use disorder through having access to support from multiple entities along the way. David's story was highly impactful in helping attendees see a real life example of recovery in action for himself, others in his family, and many around the world!
