Networking. Education. Collaboration.
To be the go-to weekly virtual educational and networking event for treatment and wellness providers in San Diego, Orange County and Los Angeles.

Anyone who is looking to expand their treatment and recovery industry network and learn more about best practices, treatment modalities and providers.
Providing weekly, virtual networking and educational meetings as well as quarterly in person networking and education opportunities.
