As part of Tabor Group’s 30th Anniversary celebrations, Tabor Group are hosting a one-day conference on October 24th 2019, at the Clayton Silver Springs Hotel Cork.
The conference will celebrate the development of addiction treatment over the years by inviting National and International leading practitioners and advocators to share the grounds for their confidence that treatment works.
This conference will continue to promote and encourage participation from all parts of the sector towards a shared appreciation and learning of what medical, psychosocial and peer-based approaches offer in the realm of addiction, through the experiences of service users, industry leaders, clinicians and researchers.
The conference will include 5 keynote speakers, 3 workshops and will conclude with a plenary session.
Susan’s professional life has centred on the justice systems, her personal life has been a journey in which she has experienced first-hand the impact of addiction. Susan’s experiences growing up in a family where alcoholism was present and her own struggle with alcohol gives her unique insight into the issues that many other’s “experts” have only studied.
She has not only worked on the front lines dealing with the problems of substance use disorders in the child welfare, juvenile and criminal justice systems, but she has also spent the last several years studying what works and what doesn’t at one of the most prestigious universities in the nation.

She was a member of the Mayor’s Child Abuse Task Force, the New York City Network on Abuse and Neglect, the New State Sexual Assault Legislative Subcommittee and the Mayor’s Abandoned Infant Protection Act Subcommittee.
