International Exposure: 
 

Neil Kaltenecker, Executive Director of
The Georgia Council on Substance
Abuse, speaks at the National Press
Club in Washington, D.C.

In attendance were the Director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, Gil Kerlikowske, RADM Eric Broderick, Acting Administrator, SAMHSA, Dr. H. Westley Clark, Director, SAMHSA’s Center for Substance Abuse Treatment, and Bob DeBitetto, President and General Manager A&E Network.

Neil also represented Georgia as the Georgia Recovery Delegate at the Recovery Rally in New York City.

The A&E network launched The Recovery Project in 2008 to generate awareness that addiction is a treatable disease and recovery is possible. More than 10,000 people attended the second annual Recovery Rally in NYC and walked across the Brooklyn Bridge in support of recovery. Click Here for a photo gallery of the Rally for Recovery.
