• Centerstone to host Ryan Hampton at October Spotlight Series event

    August 06, 2019
    Centerstone, a national leader in behavioral health care, will host two Spotlight Series events in October featuring Ryan Hampton, a prominent leading face and voice of addiction recovery.

    Multiple years into recovery from a decade-long opioid addiction, Hampton has been recently rocketed to the center of America’s recovery advocacy movement.  He is changing the national dialogue about addiction through social media.  With content that reaches over one million people a week, Hampton is breaking down cultural barriers that have kept people suffering in silence and is inspiring a digital revolution of people recovering out loud through his impactful #VoicesProject.

    Centerstone will host the Spotlight Series event in Southern Illinois on Monday, October 28 from 5-7 p.m. at Heartland Regional Medical Center’s cafeteria and classrooms. The Spotlight Series event in the Metro-East area will be held on Tuesday, October 29 from 5-7 p.m. at OSF Saint Anthony’s Health Center in Alton.
    “Centerstone is excited to share Ryan’s message throughout our treatment regions in Illinois,” said Centerstone Director of Advancement Jocelyn Popit.

    Registration for the October Spotlight Series events will open on Tuesday, September 3 at 8 a.m. Seating will be limited, so everyone is encouraged to mark their calendars now. There will be no charge to attend the events, but reservations are required. The events will feature appetizers, drinks, networking, and Hampton’s presentation.
