Speech Accolades

"Thanks so much for the spectacular presentation at the Philadelphia fundraising event. Your message was terrific. As I mentioned, I have heard hundreds of these during the past 28 years, and yours was amongst the very best! Your message about stigma, 'putting a face on recovery,' the positive impact on society with recovery, and the plug for Breakthrough were all done with a great deal of grace and class. I am so delighted that you have joined the New York Advisory Board. You have so much to offer, as we continue to further the mission of helping individuals and families impacted by the deadly disease of addiction."

- Douglas Tieman, President/CEO, Caron Foundation

"Laurie tells her story with eloquent finesse and heartfelt conviction, a rare combination of style and substance that inspires everyone to believe in the power of hope, help and healing. Nobody who hears Laurie doubts that power. She reminds us that from adversity comes opportunity, and she’s using her own life to inspire others to do the same. What can I say? Laurie’s just a really nice person."

- William Moyers, Vice President of Public Affairs and Community Relations, Hazelden

"Laurie Dhue presented to the largest audience in the history of JMATE, the National Joint Meeting on Adolescent Treatment Effectiveness in Washington, DC. Her energy and depth of conviction as she spoke made the audience of over 1200 people feel they were alone in the room with her. She gave a highly articulate and clear description of the challenges of addiction. With her powerful delivery, she touched hearts, made us laugh and called us to action. Her presentation set the tone for the three-day conference. She not only engaged the audience from start to finish, she was extremely adept at managing a panel discussion that added to the substance of the program through her questions and comments. She is a rare find as a speaker who can deliver a powerful message while connecting on a personal level with a large audience."

- Catherine Hartnett, Executive Director, National Youth Recovery Foundation

"Laurie Dhue delivered a compelling commencement address at the annual graduation ceremony for The Hazelden Graduate School of Addiction Studies. Ms. Dhue engaged everyone in attendance-- an overflowing audience from board members to graduates-- with an elocution that at once both identified the implications of addiction in America and emphasized the personal devastation of chemical dependence, while also highlighting the real promise and fullness of recovery. Ms. Dhue eloquently fused her journalistic acumen with a moving genuineness that will long be remembered."

-  - Daniel C. Frigo, Ph.D. Dean, The Hazelden Graduate School of Addiction Studies

"People at McShin Recovery Fest really felt Laurie's enthusiasm and passion for recovery. Her message of hope is second to none; she touched and inspired so many. I believe that her involvement in the recovery movement will lead her to become part of the next generation of 'trusted servants' in the field, joining the likes of Betty Ford and Father Martin. She is the real deal."

- John Shinholser, President, McShin Foundation, Richmond, VA

"Outstanding! You are remarkable in your ability to deliver a 'home run' every time you present on behalf of Caron. You are a gifted presenter with a powerful and compelling message. Thanks for helping everyone understand that addiction can happen to anyone, anywhere, and anytime – and even more importantly, that recovery is indeed, possible!"

- Doug Tieman, CEO of Caron Treatment Centers

"It was a wonderful event. We loved Laurie and we have heard nothing but rave reviews from those who attended the event! Thank you for helping us bring her here."
