2018 Addiction Health Summit

The 2018 Addiction Health Summit is a two and a half day conference that brings together like-minded people from a variety of addiction arenas - physicians, professionals, policy makers, advocates, friends-of-recovery and people-in-recovery. Blending medical and professional education with real-world recovery experience and fellowship, our aim is to serve, unite and synergize, while enjoying our time together!

Join us on  Thursday for a special video conferencing presentation and conversation with  Sam Quinones, a journalist, storyteller, former LA Times reporter, and author of three acclaimed books of narrative nonfiction.

His most recent book is Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic by Bloomsbury Press.

His career as a journalist has spanned almost 30 years. He lived for 10 years as a freelance writer in Mexico, where he wrote his first two books. In 2004, he returned to the United States to work for the L.A. Times, covering immigration, drug trafficking, neighborhood stories, and gangs.

In 2014, he resigned from the paper to return to freelancing, working for National Geographic, Pacific Standard Magazine, the New York Times, Los Angeles Magazine, and other publications.

Columbia Journalism School selected him as a 2008 recipient of the Maria Moors Cabot prize, for a career of excellence in covering Latin America. He is also a 1998 recipient of an Alicia Patterson Fellowship, one of the most prestigious fellowships given to print journalists.

He teaches Tell Your True Tale writing workshops, and edits a storytelling webpage of the same name.
