BHNR Raises $250,000 Worth of Addiction Treatment Scholarships for The Addicts Mom
$250,000 Worth of Addiction Treatment Scholarships
Over $250,000 worth of addiction treatment scholarships were raised by BHNR and it's large addiction professional audience. This past addiction professional conference (two events in one) not only educated addiction professionals on the business side of addiction treatment, but also honored and raised over $250,000 worth of addiction treatment scholarships for The Addicts Mom organization. The Addiction VIP Symposium and The Addicts Mom gala was not your average addiction professional conference. This addiction professional event attracted 55 exhibitors, 240 attendees (40 walk-ins at the door), and immediately following the symposium was a crowd of 160 for The Addicts Mom Lifetime Achievement award Gala that witnessed a rare experience of over 14 organizations demonstrating they give back by donating over $250,000 worth of addiction treatment scholarships during The Addicts Mom's Lifetime achievement ceremony.
This event, and the addiction treatment scholarships would not be possible without the support of the many organizations involved especially the Symposium Co-Chair Sponsors, Peace of Mind Counseling, and The Counseling Center, along with the Co-Chair sponsors of the gala The Shores Addiction Treatment and Revive Detox Center, the 55 exhibitors, and of coarse the lunch sponsor Medytox Solutions (Rennova Health), and the gala dinner sponsors Revive Detox Center and Peaceful Ridge that provided exceptional meals to all. We invite all these organizations to all of our addiction professional conferences.
The gala had a couple of surprises with Charles Davis (CEO, Behavioral Health Network Resources, and event host) announcing that his hidden agenda from Barbara Theodosiou (Founder of The Addicts Mom) was to be able to present her addiction treatment scholarships benefiting some of the 20,000+ mothers with children that suffer from addiction. And that he did, the addiction professional community stepped up and donated over $250,000 worth of services for the Addicts Mom. Charles said, "It was the work of GOD, many people, and addiction sales, service, and treatment organizations that made all of this possible."
When Lyle Fried, CEO of The Shores Treatment decided to sponsor the addiction professional conference, he did it humbly, on-line behind the scenes without contacting Charles Davis. Lyle and Charles have known each other for several years. When Charles contacted him after signing up to be a Co-Chair, Charles asked Lyle, "why he chose to Co-Chair the event", Lyle said "It was the right thing to do." Charles said, “It was extremely exciting to be in the driver’s seat guided by a higher power and witness the addiction community coming together, and not just talking about helping, but actually stepping up and showing it.” Mr. Fried also donated some addiction treatment scholarships.

Unlike the other regular addiction professional conferences, you raised the bar on quality Education, Networking, and helping many that can't afford treatment. ALL the addiction treatment exhibitors connected on a genuine level. Everyone felt this was on an entirely new level, The addiction treatment exhibitor area had a steady stream of heavy traffic thought-out the day. OUTSTANDING event!
Charles made me feel extremely comfortable during my NAADAC CEU addiction professional presentation and provided the ideal combination of individuals and addiction treatment organizations that formed bonds instantly.
