A New Day for Substance Treatment: The Public and Private Solution to Protect Your Community

This panel will discuss the laws that have been passed and the effects on the industry, how FARR will examine the sober homes, what happened to a city and how that city has come back when corrupt individuals move in, and how local, state and government agencies combine with the treatment community and nonprofits to assist in eliminating unethical individuals.

Safe travels and we hope to see you November 27-28, 2018 at Recovery Results in Dallas!
