This is the 14th year of our annual event, at our usual location in San Jose. We’ll also have a live stream at https://www.twitch.tv/manypathsonedestination for those that can’t attend. We have seven awesome guest speakers touching on a broad range of recovery-based topics. Some will be sharing their experiences with art, music, dance, and entertaining as it relates to recovery. We’ll have information tables and representatives representing a variety of recovery groups and organizations. We’re ready to go and hope you will be joining us!
