welcome to The Addiction Collective:

3 Day ONLINE Sobriety & Addiction Recovery Summit

Hey, If you or someone you care about is on the wild ride of breaking free from an addiction and not sure what road to take next, you’re in the right place!

At The Addiction Collective, we totally get it.

The journey to recovery can feel like navigating a maze – so many different pathways, stop-and-go signs, and a ton of roads to go down. It’s a unique journey, but guess what?

It doesn’t have to be a brain-bender, and you don’t need to do it alone!

To help you out, as we have been where you are before, we’ve rallied up a bunch of badass humans – experts, real people with lived experience, and advocates – for a virtual lineup of masterclasses and workshops that’s all about giving you the power on this wild ride.

So When Is This You Ask?

February 2-4, 2024
The summit runs from 9am – 2pm AEST each day!
(February 1-3, 2024  at 2pm – 7pm PST each day)

This means you can jump online and take part in as many workshops or events as you like.

SPEAKERS LIST Meet Our Epic Lineup

Get ready for a legendary lineup of speakers – meet experts, authors, and everyday heroes who’ve flipped the bird to addiction.
Brace yourself for some real talk about the latest research, treatment hacks, and stories of recovery and bouncing back.


So, Who Is This For Anyway?

  • Those stuck in the grip and unsure where to turn. 
  • Those that really want to understand addiction at its core. 
  • Those that have questioned support systems already suggested to them.
  • Those that have been plugged into systems that have failed them. 
  • Those already on this journey of recovery or healing but are wanting more.
  • Those that are at a point of “I didn’t come this far to only come this far!”
  • Those on the front lines supporting the ones in need that want to expand their own education on how to better help the ones in need. 
  • The ones that want to shake this space up and delete the BS stigma associated to that word alcoholic, addict or addiction FOR GOOD!

Your Hosts A Note from our Organisers Drew and Ryan

As founders of Line In The Sand Recovery, a program helping people all over the world with addiction, we wanted to bring together the best people we know into a massive virtual lineup of events.

Our MISSION is to break down the barriers to accessing the info and support you need, no matter where in the world you are! Our VISION is to bring a vibe and an energy into this event that’s different from your average online conference or event, and to make this as much FUN as it will be informative.

We want to remind you that there’s incredible richness to life beyond addiction… That it won’t always be a battle and a struggle… AND there’s a HUGE amount of epic people here who WANT to support you.

Because lasting sustainable recovery can happen,
and is SO f*ing worth it.
