aboutLIC1

The Lifestyle Intervention Conference provides educational content while building a network of resources for providers who serve those struggling with drug, alcohol and process addictions as well as food disorders and now a special focus on workplace intervention.

The conference will focus on four key areas:

  • Advanced Intervention Training
  • Employee Assistance Training for Professionals

  • Love, Sex & Relationship Addictions
  • Food Disorders

We offer advanced training for professionals, which will help them quickly and effectively recognize, intervene, diagnose and treat those who need help.
