Day of Discovery and Recovery to highlight National Drug Addiction Recovery Month

(Dallas, Tx.) Co-chairs Robin Bagwell and Jan Osborn recently welcomed more than 50 committee members and friends for Caron Cares at a private Highland Park residence, as the group gathered to hear plans for the conference scheduled for Friday, September 9 at The Fairmont Hotel in Dallas.
Touted as a Day of Discovery and Recovery, the one-day Caron Cares seminar is presented as a community service event for those seeking answers to the challenges of addiction. 

Hosted by Dallas’ newest addiction treatment center, Caron Texas, the event will begin with a breakfast and keynote speaker, followed by guests’ choice of two seminar sessions and a keynote speaker at lunch.  The program will end at 2 p.m.

“No family is untouched by alcohol or drug addiction – in fact, one in six families in Texas is dealing with this disease,” said Robin Bagwell, Caron Cares co-chairman and Caron Texas board member.  “We have planned an informative and inspirational day to examine the signs and symptoms of addiction, its impact on families and how individuals and families in recovery and professionals in the field can have hope for the future.”
Lecture topics for Caron Cares will include such choices as: The Warning Signs of Alcoholism and Addiction: What caring parents need to know about the new frontier of genetic research and substance abuse ; The Laws and AddictionWhat you need to know about liability and ordinances in your own backyard ; Insatiable Hungers: Eating disorders and substance abuse ; Pain Medications: The next epidemic; Taking the First Step on the Road to Recovery: A primer on interventions and treatments; Sustaining Recovery: Living your best life: Healthy choices, now and always.
Keynote breakfast speakers will be Constance Curry and Kristina Wandzilak, mother and daughter authors of "The Lost Years," the true story of a child caught in the depravity of alcohol and drug addiction and a mother helplessly standing by unable to save her.  Their powerful story begins with the suffering, turmoil and destruction of addiction, and ends with forgiveness, reconciliation and redemption.
Committee members for the event include: Melinda Austin, Don Benton, Mary Ellen Bluntzer, Ouida Bradshaw, Brooke Cohen, Candice Connor, Mallory Creixwell, Juli Ferraro, Michael Fowler, Elizabeth Gambrell, Daniel Gowan, Kal Grant, Jim Hutcheson, Susan Hutcheson, Lois Jordan, Susan Keene, Ashlee Kleinert, Marie Krebbs, Karl Kuby, Leslie Melson, Scott Murray, Eric Niedermeyer, Liz Pasquinelli, Bryant Patton, Katie Pedigo, Paul Rasmussen, Dottie Reader, Kellie Schriver, Sharon Seagraves, Lisa Schlachter, Garrett Smith, Dale Truitt, Diana Weaver, Roger Welder, Joe Wood, Jack Zogg.
“While we may or may not be dealing directly with addiction in our lives today, someone we love or know well, will be at some point in their lives,” said Jan Osborn, Caron Cares co-chairman and Caron Texas Advisory Board member.  “So that we can all understand addiction and what we can do to help our children and our community, we are hosting the first Caron Cares symposium during the month of September, which is National Drug Addiction Recovery Month.”
Caron Texas opened its doors in July 2010 and is providing comprehensive, high-quality, gender-specific addiction treatment to adults in Texas and the Southwest. Part of the Caron Treatment Centers network, the 28,000-square-foot facility is set on 40 acres and offers many amenities for patients and their families in a serene and secluded setting, just 40 miles north of Dallas.  A new 14,000-square-foot fitness center and swimming pool were recently completed on the campus last winter.
In addition to its new center in Texas, Caron offers a continuum of care, operating residential treatment centers in Wernersville, PA, and Boca Raton, FL with regional offices in Boston, Philadelphia, New York City, Washington, D.C., and Bermuda.  More information on Caron Texas is available at
