In this inspirational plenary session, Tony Hoffman, former BMX Pro, U.S. Olympic Coach and person in recovery, will reflect on the choice that changed his life forever. Many believe that small, insignificant choices have no impact on their lives, but one choice created a roller coaster ride in Hoffman’s life. He will address his early years as a talented athlete with a negative attitude and how his mental health issues became a foundation for his eventual substance use. Attitudes, choices and thought processes led him to marijuana, which opened the door for prescription painkiller and heroin use. It was a decision that changed his life forever. Hoffman will address the restoration of his life and how his recovery has allowed him to give back.
