The C.O.R.E. Conference is one of the premier addiction and recovery conferences hosted by C4 Recovery Solutions to advance participants understanding of the principles behind abstinence-based recovery practices. The conference is structured as a forum to increase the collective understanding of the addiction recovery processes. The goal is to improve addiction treatment outcomes by better integrating abstinence-based practices and Twelve-Step principles into therapeutic initiatives.
Developed more than 75-years ago, the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous have withstood the test of time and science to emerge as a primary foundation for recovery from both alcoholism and drug addiction. Many addiction treatment conferences focus on science and practice but with an alarming and growing emphasis on drug replacement therapies. Recovery is increasingly playing a secondary role. While science and new clinical tools are important, they cannot replace the Twelve Steps as a key means of facilitating the personal growth that is necessary for a sustainable and long-term recovery.
