The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently reported that for the second year in a row the life expectancy in the US has declined - a change that is largely influenced by an increase in drug overdose among young people.  Everyone in every community has been affected by addiction in one form or another - an alcoholic parent, a teen in rehab, or maybe a spouse addicted to pornography.

Erik Kerr, the Co-Founder of Clear Health Technologies is here to talk about the massive impact addiction has on the lives of 282 million people worldwide.  He and Summer Felix-Mulder have brought together 29 amazing speakers on healing all facets of addiction and facilitating lifelong recovery.  It’s a free online 7-day event called the Healing Addiction Summit, and it starts February 3rd.
