The Mercy Center in Burlingame, CA, has agreed to host our Benzo Summit.
The dates available in August are the 15th, 16th and 17th and also the 29th, 30th, and 31st.
We need a minimum of 10 people to attend. The cost is $130. per person, per night. That includes your room and meals. Meals start with dinner the night you arrive and conclude with breakfast the day you leave. It also includes the use of a conference room. There is an additional labor cost of $150 for set up, cleaning etc to be split by all attending.
If we want to make this a reality, I need firm commitments along with a deposit after we decide on the date(s).
I live very close to the center, so we can spend time in my healing garden. We can also explore the San Fran Bay Area as a group, or individually.
The focus of the summit will be to share our experience, strength and hope with each other. We will brainstorm ways to educate doctors and to help others get off of their benzo, survive and thrive. We will discuss ways to get the FDA to ban long-term prescriptions. Any other worthy topic is of course welcomed.
Let’s start with a head count, then we can organize how our time is best used.
Do you want to stay for one night? Two? Three? Please let me know.
I can’t pass this around on Benzo Buddies as I am now working with people in recovery for a fee. It would appear to Colin that I am seeking clients. If any of you want to share the information with people in BB, please let them know this is a FREE event, other than the cost of travel and the stay at Mercy.
I am not on any Facebook groups, so if anyone wants to spread the word there, please do.
If you want to attend, please fill in the contact form below. Hopefully we will get enough people to make this a reality. Thank you.
An added thought: if we don’t have 10 people for the Mercy Center, people can still stay there cheaply and we can do the summit at my house. Or people can stay at local hotels. I’d offer my place for overnight stays but my apartment is tiny.
