Addiction as a Modern Health Crisis

Every 14 seconds, someone dies from one of the biggest healthcare issues in this country: addiction. America loses half-a-trillion dollars every year in lost wages, lost productivity, hospitalization, institutionalization, and incarceration due to the epidemic of addiction and the lives it destroys. In this speech, recovering alcoholic and speaker Laurie Dhue reveals how much drug and alcohol abuse is damaging this country and what can - and should - be done to battle this modern health crisis.

You Have to Surrender to Win: Climbing Your Way Out of Rock Bottom

From the heights of broadcaster stardom to the depths of despair in her darkest periods of alcoholism, speaker Laurie Dhue shares her courageous story of getting - and staying - clean. In this inspirational speech, Dhue offers insight into the battle of addiction and how she finally found her path out of the disease that would have eventually killed her. Through her brave and passionate story, she shows audiences that through failure comes humility - and ultimately triumph.
