Cutting Edge 2018 - It's all about connection                                                 

 12-15 September, Energy Event Centre, Rotorua

This year’s theme is: 'It’s all about Connection.' Those of us working with people affected by addiction offer hope by supporting them to strengthen their connections. Whether it’s connection to whānau, culture, spirituality, pro-social community activities, or a deeper connection to self, we help people uncover a multitude of positive opportunities at any stage of their recovery journey. Be part of the solution, come along and connect at Cutting Edge 2018.

We have an excellent line up of keynotes including Johann Hari - 2018 is shaping up as the best ever
