“Recovery work, healing work, to me, is based in community. It’s not based in an individual therapist, it’s not based in an individual treatment center. … The healing happens within real, integrated, connected, soulful communities.”—Lee McCormick

Addiction professionals in the Nashville, Tennessee, community and beyond came together on July 25, 2013, to discuss building a recovery-oriented system of care (ROSC). The event, produced by Addiction Professional, featured several panelists to provide their insights on ROSC:

  • Lee McCormick, founder of Integrative Life Center, The Ranch Recovery Center, and Canyon Treatment Center
  • Dr. Margaret Nagib, a Faculty Member of the Timberline Knolls Clinical Development Institute
  • Dr. Dawn-Elise Snipes, Director of Outpatient Services at Foundations Nashville
