Renowned actor, comedian and New York Times best-selling author joins legendary country artist and songwriter for a Foundations Recovery Network conference on integrated treatment
October 4, 2012 (Nashville, Tenn.)—Foundations Recovery Network, an innovative behavioral health treatment provider with facilities across the US, is proud to announce the addition of both Darrell Hammond and Larry Gatlin at its 36th National Conference – “Moments of Change: Innovations in Integrated Treatment,” which will be held October 8-11, 2012, at The Breakers resort in Palm Beach, FL. The conference brings together industry leaders to present the most relevant and innovative topics across the spectrum of integrated treatment.
Darrell Hammond has brought to life a cavalcade of politicians, media figures, celebrities and newsmakers on television. Darrell is known for being one of the most prolific comedians of his time. He holds the title for being the longest running cast member on Saturday Night Live (SNL), and every one of his impressions are applauded by television critics and viewers alike for their accuracy and range. They include: Bill Clinton, Regis Philbin, Dan Rather, John Travolta, Jesse Jackson, Richard Dreyfus, Jay Leno, Donald Trump, and Sean Connery in the ever-popular “Celebrity Jeopardy” skits.
In addition to ongoing cameo appearances on SNL and many of the popular FUNNY OR DIE episodes on the Internet, Darrell has appeared in numerous films and on Broadway. He is also a New York Times bestselling author. His book God If You’re Not Up There, I’m F***ed: Tales of Stand-Up, Saturday Night Live and Other Mind-Altering Mayhem bravely chronicles his personal journey through trauma and addiction into recovery in a highly unique style and is being adapted into a Broadway play.
Darrell Hammond will speak at the conference on Tuesday, October 9, at 6:30 pm.
From humble beginnings in Abilene, Tex., Larry Gatlin has enjoyed a remarkable four-decade career that has taken him and his brothers from dusty Texas stages to White House performances, from Broadway to Grammy Awards and to the top of the country charts.
Larry Gatlin attended the University of Houston on a football scholarship where he majored in English and quickly developed "a love affair with the English language" that later served him well in his songwriting. In the early ‘70s, Larry moved to Nashville to write songs that would be recorded by Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Barbara Streisand, Tom Jones, and Elvis Presley.
The success that followed included multiple Grammy Awards, #1 hits, more than a dozen top 40 singles, industry accolades and sold-out arenas around the country. During these decades of high-flying success, Larry had also nurtured a dependence upon alcohol and drugs, which nearly ended his career at the highest point.
Larry Gatlin will share his remarkable story of transformation and recovery through his songs and stories, performing at the conference on Wednesday, October 10 at 6:30 pm.
