Prior to her work in the recovery field, Dhue enjoyed a distinguished career as an award-winning national news anchor who hosted shows on all three major cable news networks: CNN, MSNBC and Fox News Channel. She most recently served as lead news anchor for The Blaze TV. Her 25 years in news has included interviews with numerous world leaders, politicians, entertainers and prominent newsmakers as well as extensive reporting from the Middle East during the War on Terror.

Dhue has had the distinct honor or speaking at the White House in 2014 and 2017 on behalf of ONDCP. She was also a featured speaker at the inaugural UNITE to Face Addiction national rally in Washington, DC in 2015. Dhue appeared in the award-winning 2013 documentary “The Anonymous People” and the 2017 documentary “Reversing the Stigma”, produced in conjunction with OASAS (New York State’s Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse).

One of the nation’s leading recovery advocates, Dhue is in long-term recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction. She has worked closely with the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Faces and Voices of Recovery (FAVOR) and the National Council on Alcohol and Drug Dependence (NCADD). Dhue has spoken on behalf of many national recovery organizations including the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation and the Caron Foundation. She travels coast-to-coast giving speeches, emceeing events and moderating panel discussions, as well as offering commentary in national and international media.

You Have to Surrender to Win: Climbing Your Way Out of Rock Bottom

From the heights of TV news stardom to the depths of despair in her darkest periods of alcoholism, Laurie Dhue shares her courageous story of getting--and staying—clean and sober. In this inspirational speech, Dhue offers insight into her battle with a nearly 20-year addiction and how she finally surrendered to the process of recovery from a disease that would have eventually killed her. Through her brave and passionate story, Laurie shows audiences that through failure and fear comes humility—and eventually triumph.

 

Addiction as a Modern Health Crisis

Every 14 seconds, someone dies from one of the biggest healthcare issues in this country: addiction. This disease costs America half a trillion dollars a year in lost wages, lost productivity, hospitalization, institutionalization and incarceration, not to mention liver failure, heart disease and cancer. Addiction doesn't discriminate: it touches every American family in one way or another. In this speech, veteran broadcast journalist and recovering alcoholic Laurie Dhue reveals how drug and alcohol abuse is ravaging this country, and provides insight into what can, and should be done to battle this epidemic.
