We’d like to thank Seattle University for hosting the 2018 Recovery and Wellness Conference.

The 2018 Recovery and Wellness graphics were adapted from Marianne LaJambe's artwork entitled "My Garden: Where I Enjoy my Serenity." Marianne created the artwork as a way of spreading the good news about recovery and resiliency.
