We hope you’ll join us in Kennewick in June as we bring together a diverse group of presenters and attendees to share information about therapeutic interventions, recovery supports, promising programs, and policies that advance best practices. Our goal is to provide a learning experience that expands professional knowledge, promotes community partnerships, and helps make recovery a reality. We had over 650 attendees at the 2023 WBHC in Kennewick, and are looking forward to another great conference in 2024!

  • Ricky Kidd, a master of resilience who was wrongfully convicted, spent 23 years in prison, and after his exoneration works to help others become resilient in the face of their challenges
