Interested community groups, churches, schools,work places and other groups can avail themselves of these speakers— free of charge—by calling the CDRC and asking to be connected to the Speakers Bureau coordinator, Lawrence Zimmerman.

  • Addiction is a disease that is progressive and, if left untreated, can be fatal.
  • Getting sober and staying sober
  • Couples in Recovery
  • Spiritual aspects of recovery
  • Simple steps to help you stay straight and sober
  • Addiction affects not just the addict but also his or her family, workplace and community.
  • How addiction affects brain chemistry.

If your group has a particular topic you would like to hear about, please contact the Speakers Bureau Coordinator at the CDRC and we will attempt to meet the needs of your group.
