Power of Hope Conference

Impacting the substance use crisis through hope and education

Parents of Addicted Loved Ones (PAL) is excited to host the 2nd annual one-day Power of Hope conference on October 5, 2024 in Phoenix! We want to bring together people from various communities with a personal and/or professional connection to substance use disorder (SUD). We can highlight the importance of restoration of our loved ones and their families affected by this disease by engaging the spectrum of recovery and being change agents around this issue. Through best practice methods, we are confident that we can foster change and build a network of like-minded individuals and organizations.

Those who attend will be a part of a daylong event designed to attract individuals, parents, business leaders, counselors, treatment centers, social workers, public health leaders, and religious communities—anyone who has a loved one or knows someone who has battled with substance use disorder.

The conference will feature a variety of elements including recognized feature speakers, breakout sessions, interactive activities, evidence-based research, and educational and networking opportunities.

Together we can impact the substance use crisis through hope and education by unifying the community to be change agents, to transform lives, and to take a well-rounded approach to recovery.
