Celebrating 10 Years of Honoring Our Past and Protecting Our Future at Four Directions

As our Four Directions conference theme suggests, our goal is to Honor Our Past and Protect Our Future through holistic health, wellness, and recovery support. As we celebrate our 10th year as a conference, we hope to bring together Tribal leaders, behavioral health directors and counselors, education and prevention specialists, recovery and peer coaches, and representatives of the gaming industry to support each other with knowledge and experience around health issues, gambling disorder and other addictions, and financial and safety concerns that affect all our communities.

Early Bird Registration Deadline is Sunday, September 2, 2018
