“What happened in that room was transformational…I was very impressed with his ability to captivate and inspire the audience.” Tori DeGroote, CATC-III | Program Director | Turning Point Treatment Center
2 DAY WORKSHOP
Our two day workshop is designed to motivate and educate individuals whom are already in a treatment setting. Todd takes the clients deep into his personal story of recovery, stressing the vital importance of the work necessary to first get physically sober, then moving into the ever so important phase of “emotional sobriety” the key to our happiness once we are physically sober.
During the course of these two days there will be a viewing of the film, “The Long Way Back,” the story of Todd “Zman” Zalkins followed by Q&A sessions, group meetings and one on one sessions with the clients. The format allows the opportunity for everyone to participate, and every emotion can often be revealed, a few laughs and even some healing tears, but a lot of fun will happen that’s for sure.
This time spent takes the individuals far beyond a “speaker” visitation. As a successful motivational speaker and one who is passionate about his own recovery, Todd’s goal for all who participate is to have an impactful impression for their own recovery, and that they too can have a life of freedom, filled with purpose and meaning…
Note: Todd Zalkins memoir “Dying for Triplicate” was written when he was 18 months clean and sober. Mainly diving into the physical problem and the insanity of the disease of his 17 year addiction to prescription pain killers, the book has sold more than 50,000 copies worldwide. This started him on his path of becoming an interventionist, as families began reaching out to him from all over the United States and as far away as Ireland and Australia.
Todd was trained by a seasoned, successful interventionist, and in time developed his own style, ultimately starting his own company, All-In Interventions. His personal story is now a feature length documentary film, “The Long Way Back” the story of “Todd Zman Zalkins”.
Todd has successfully facilitated hundreds of interventions across the country and delivered motivational talks to thousands of people ranging from middle schoolers, high-schoolers, parent groups, patients in treatment, and high risk fields of employment. Helping to share the message of awareness and prevention is also a major passion of Todd’s, combined with reaching those who suffer with the disease of addiction.
