The Original CORE Founding Patrons


Approaches in Client-Centered Care

Join us for the 6th Annual Clinical Overview of the Recovery Experience (CORE), a C4 Recovery Foundation event. Last year, CORE hosted 549 participants from 39 states from a diverse range of fields.

CORE highlights the critical importance of providing individualized treatment and presents new options for productively integrating useful clinical tools into a larger recovery-oriented treatment culture while maintaining passion for delivering advanced behavioral, addiction, and therapeutic services. It is an opportunity for addiction professionals to advance the principles of client-centered treatment with a strong clinical foundation as well as to be a forum to increase the collective understanding of the full continuum of recovery processes, including 12 step recovery. Our goal is to improve outcomes by better integrating personalized evidence-based treatment services that allow individuals, families, and professionals to choose the most appropriate treatment.

CORE is also host to the Advocacy and Alliance Summit (AAS) which brings together individuals and organizations from professional monitoring organizations, collegiate recovery programs, drug courts, and other advocacy groups to exchange ideas, facilitate relationships, network about resources, and participate in excellent educational opportunities.

At CORE, expect to mingle with Physicians, Nurses, Psychologists, Private Practitioners, Social Workers, Professional Counselors, Chemical Dependency Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapists, Rehabilitation Counselors, Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors, and more.

  • C4 conferences are a part of our company's yearly schedule. We feel that you create the best conferences and we make it priority to attend as many as we can each year.

  • Great conference! Learned a lot, great networking, wonderful hotel and conference center.

  • It was a pleasure to attend a conference that is not based on placing every client on drugs to get them off drugs and alcohol.

  • I feel that I learned a lot as a result of attending this conference and left feeling rejuvenated as a substance abuse/mental health practitioner!

  • More than anything, the CORE is inspiring for us clinicians to not give up on improving our outcomes. The entire vibe of the conference is motivating!
