Free Webinar – Addiction & Relapse

April 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm CDT

Addiction & Relapse

A New Paradigm for Recovery

With fentanyl showing up in every kind of street drug, relapse following treatment is becoming increasingly dangerous. Relapse is widely accepted as the norm following treatment, but does it need to be?

There are evidence-based practices that work very well to prevent relapse but those practices are not regularly applied in the field.

Bill Messinger, retired attorney and recovery coach, will help us understand the state of current relapse prevention practices and what we can do to improve outcomes. He will help us understand how faith communities could play an important supportive role in helping people on their journey back to wholeness. Join us for this free webinar and discussion on this life and death issue.

Thursday, April 28 11:00 am Central Timewith follow-up 30-minute Zoom discussion. Register Now 

Bill Messinger was born and raised in Milwaukee in a second-generation family business environment. He received his BA from Yale and his JD from the University of Minnesota. He is a Hazelden-trained addiction professional. After completing treatment at Hazelden in 1995, Bill became concerned about the problem of relapse prevention and how to improve recovery rates from substance use disorders. In 1998, Bill learned of the high success rates from addiction for physicians and pilots. Since that time, he has been an advocate for using the same approach for other groups, with a focus on helping families come up with solutions for addressing addiction in loved ones.
