Dominique Simon-Levine: Speaking Engagements

DSL speaking engagements

►  WEDNESDAY, August 19, 2020 — From 4 PM to 5:20 PM Pacific Time — Oregon Recovery Community Summit 

Dominique will be moderating a panel discussion centered on CRAFT and the role of family in a loved one's recovery. Social workers, CRAFT practitioners as well as Oregon Senator Lew Frederick will be answering Dominique's questions.
Senator Frederick is a friend and supporter of Oregon Recovers. He advocates for a continuum of care in Oregon to address the addiction crisis. He also has a special relationship to the cause, being the father of a young woman with SUD who is now in recovery. 

Panel Discussion: What's a Family To Do? How families can use the science of motivation and change to help loved ones with substance use disorder  — and steer clear of outdated concepts such as tough love, enabling and rock bottom.

Due to COVID-19 regulations, this year the summit will be held online on August 19th-20th. For more information visit this page, and if you have any questions contact
