Black Tie International:
Caron Cares First Annual Health Conference & Luncheon

Brad Lamm

Brad Lamm


Dr. Oz interventionist Brad Lamm and Lost Years
co-authors present keynotes

(Dallas, TX) With one in six families in Texas now dealing with some
form of addiction, a non-profit organization is shedding light and
information on the signs and symptoms, addiction’s impact on families and how individuals and families in recovery and professionals in the field can have hope for the future.

Caron Cares, the first annual health conference and luncheon presented as a community service by Caron Treatment Centers for parents, professionals and the public is scheduled for Friday, September 9, 2011 at the Fairmont Hotel in Dallas. To take place during September’s National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month, Caron Cares offers its guests an opportunity to tailor their day with selections of two lectures presented along with keynote speakers at breakfast and lunch. Sponsored by local nonprofit addiction treatment center, Caron Texas, the event runs from
9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Breakfast keynote speakers, Constance Curry and Kristina Wandzilak, mother and daughter co-authors of The Lost Years will start the day with their true story of an all-American girl and her family's compelling journey through addiction and recovery. Participants will break for two lectures of their own selection, and regroup for a luncheon featuring keynote speaker, Brad Lamm. Known for helping people make life-enhancing changes on the Dr. Oz Show, Lamm is an author, speaker and founder and president of Intervention Specialists, a family education and crisis intervention group that helps family and friends get loved ones to accept help and begin lasting change. He is also a creator and producer of the new series “Addicted to Food” on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

Other lecture topics for the event will include:

· The Warning Signs of Alcoholism and Addiction: What caring
adults need to know about the new frontier of genetic research and
substance abuse
· Insatiable Hungers: Eating disorders and substance abuse.
· Pain medications: The next epidemic
· The Modern Family: Focusing on Love in a Stressful World
· Subtle Abuse: Reclaiming Your Values and Worth
· The Laws and Addiction: What you need to know about
liability and ordinances in your own backyard

Co-chairmen for the event are Robin Bagwell and Jan Osborn. Education chairman is Leslie Melson.

“Addiction is an epidemic and it does not discriminate,” said event
co-chairman and Caron Texas board member, Robin Bagwell. “Every day we see a tragic headline of drug or alcohol abuse affecting our community. Knowledge and understanding of addiction and the steps we can take to combat this disease is why a day of education is essential for everyone.”

Committee members for the event include Don Benton, Mary Ellen
Bluntzer, Ouida Bradshaw, Andrew Clyde, Brooke Cohen, Candice Connor, Mallory Creixwell, Juli Ferraro, Michael Fowler, Elizabeth Gambrell, Daniel Gowan, Kal Grant, Jim Hutcheson, Susan Hutchison, Lois Jordan, Susan Keene, Ashlee Kleinert, Marie Krebs, Karl Kuby, Ray LaDriere, Scott Murray, Eric Niedermayer, Liz Pasquinelli, Bryant Patton, Katie Pedigo, Paul Rasmussen, Dotti Reeder, Kellie Schriver, Sharon Seagraves, Lisa Schlachter, Garrett Smith, Sue Strauss, Jill Tannenbaum, Dale Truitt, Diana Weaver, Roger Welder, Rosemary Werner, Joe Wood and Jack Zogg.

“We are truly grateful to the community for their support of Caron’s
presentation of this special educational event,” said Amara Durham,
Director of Development and Community Relations for Caron Texas. “It is mission critical for our community, and I am delighted to welcome such a diverse group of speakers and presenters. There is something here for everyone.”

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 completed on the campus last winter.

n 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  or @CaronTreatment on Twitter. Tickets to Caron Cares are $150 per person, with discounts available for students and clergy.
