"Ben is a true example of how a person can make a personal life change to then change the lives of others. I would highly recommend Ben to speak about the addictive nature of marijuana as it relates the adolescent lifestyles and development. His realistic and comfortable communication style allows for attendees to quickly connect and learn the real world of addiction and treatment. People will leave a session with Ben with a lot more information on THC commercialization and having some laughs along the way."
"Ben Cort represents the best of the best in the addiction treatment field: compassion, integrity, a strong focus on ethics, and a dedication to doing what's right. Ben doesn't look for shortcuts or easy answers. He's not afraid to share his perspective. And Ben always aims to find ways to build relationships and coalitions that will ultimately benefit patients, families, and communities."--Doug Edwards, Director, Institute for the Advancement of Behavioral Healthcare
