Transformations Treatment Center Hosts 2nd Annual National Sports Summit

Transformations Substance Abuse and Mental Health Treatment Center will be hosting their 2nd Annual National Sports Summit, August 25-26 at the Hyatt Place in Delray Beach, FL, once again bringing together addiction experts, former athletes, and clinical leaders from all major professional sports programs to discuss progress made over the last year in the way of treating retired and current athletes who are suffering from substance use disorder (SUD) and co-occurring disorders.

The idea for the summit came from Randy Grimes, a former 10-year Tampa Bay Buccaneer and the National Director of Business Development and Strategy for Transformations. Randy spent 20 years of his life battling addiction to pain medication which he developed while treating career-related injuries. “In the ever-evolving world of addiction and trauma surrounding athletes and their unique challenges, it is as important as ever to be collaborative with all the different organizations that deal with the various sports. The inaugural Sports Summit birthed that vision and was a huge success bringing all these different agencies under one roof for two days of integrating ideas,” Randy recounts.

Transformations is grateful for the return of After The Impact Fund, NFL Player Care Foundation, and the Baseball Assistance Team, and is excited to welcome new organizations this year such as Tulane University Center for Sport, Motorsports Safety Group, Jockeys’ Guild, Sandoz Inc., Prince Marketing Group, C4 Events, and Patients Preferred.

As part of this years’ agenda, there will be two featured keynote speakers who will be kicking off each morning of the summit with their unique presentations. On the first day, Dr. Robert Cantu, Co-Founder of the CTE Center at the Boston University School of Medicine, will be presenting on his work with concussion research over the last several years. He will speak on the signs and symptoms of CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy), concluding with his views on future player safety. Day two will feature Dr. Camille Kraft, the former administrator of the NFL Substance Abuse Program. Dr. Kraft will examine the current approach to substance abuse programs for professional athletes and her unique perspective will enable us to rethink the way we serve our clients.

“Taking the experience from last year and seeing where we could broaden our outreach to include more diversity, the second annual Sports Summit was conceived. We are so proud of the strides we’ve taken, the relationships we’ve developed, and the knowledge we’ve acquired from some of the brightest, most experienced and compassionate leaders and professionals from various sports backgrounds,” expresses Randy in his excitement for this year’s event.
