January’s speaker will be Kristina Wandzilak, whose personal story of addiction, recovery, and passion for helping others has inspired millions.

You may know Kristina from her book The Lost Years, which chronicles her and her mother’s journey with Kristina’s addiction starting at the age of 13. Or perhaps you’ve seen her on the hit TLC TV show Addicted, in which she uses her expertise as an interventionist to help other addicts into recovery.

Kristina also founded Full Circle Addiction and Recovery Services in the Bay Area, which specializes in intervention, treatment, sober living, relapse prevention, and individual and group therapy.

Join us on Thursday, Jan. 30, from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm at Beacon House to meet Kristina and hear her remarkable story.
