    Sounds great i am excited for the focus and rural community information. The average person seeking rehabilitation travels over 100km (AIHW) for a rehabiltation service which implies some people are travelling great distances for treatment.

    I am looking forward to attending this event. Are there any presentations from current rehab facilities? Are non-medical models of recovery discussed such as 12 step based programs?
