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.
We offer information, resources and encouragement. Our third annual meeting is designed to educate and inspire all who attend. Since addiction is a family disease, we encourage participants to include their spouse or partner, and adult children. The way of recovery is not an easy path, but it is a deeply rewarding one. 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.
3rd Annual Meeting of the
Western Doctors in Recovery Group
5 hours of Category 1 Credit
February 24-26, 2017
Quail Lodge Resort
Please see the video below of Chris Bundy, Medical Director of the Washington Physicians Health Program, discussing the 2016 WDR Meeting.
Quail Lodge & Golf Club is in beautiful Carmel Valley, California, a sublime pastoral river valley nestled into the towering Santa Lucia mountain range.
Big Sur Land Trust offers guided hikes in the foothills near the Lodge with knowledgeable leaders who give you the history of the area. We’ve scheduled one for the morning of Feb 24 for those who want to arrive in time to join it.
Golf? With the completion of an impressive and loving restoration, Quail’s full 18-holes offer a walk-able par-71 course.
Extending twelve miles inland from Carmel-by-the-Sea, Carmel Valley is sheltered from the fog and the busier pace of the tourist-frequented Carmel-by-the-Sea. Twelve miles from Carmel and 10 miles from Monterey Peninsula Airport. Beautiful 90-minute drive along the Pacific Coast from San Jose Airport.
U.S. Climate Data website says that the average high in February in Carmel is 64 degrees, but on Feb 22, 2016 it was 75 degrees!
