Western Doctors In Recovery

Western Doctors in Recovery

11th Annual Meeting  February 20-23, 2025 at Hyatt Regency La Jolla

Western Doctors in Recovery is dedicated to providing a vibrant forum for information, education and encouragement for doctorate level health care professionals and their families to support one another in their recovery from alcohol, drugs and other addictions.

Our group is dedicated to bringing together health care professionals who are committed to walking the path of recovery. It is a walk best shared with others.

We convene annually in the western region of the United States for education and fellowship.  Our meeting is modeled after the New England Professionals Group and follows the principles of International Doctors in AA.

The way of recovery is not an easy path, but it is a deeply rewarding one.   We offer information, resources and encouragement.

Since addiction is a family disease, we encourage participants to include their spouse or partner and adult children.

Our annual meetings are designed to educate and inspire all who attend. Join us to learn about the newest trends in addiction medicine, to hear stories told by some of our prominent successes and meet with professional colleagues in recovery.
