We all need to feel confident in being able to access the resources we need to sustain ourselves and our families, to achieve a home where we feel comfortable, create positive relationships and a sense of purpose.
Whilst effective and accessible treatment services are vital, treatment alone is not enough, we also need to ensure that barriers to recovery such as unhelpful stigma and policy are reduced or eliminated, and supporters for recovery can come together to share their views and experiences for the benefit of society.
That's why we have created the following Your Voice campaigns and projects to ensure we speak with a confident voice about what is working and what needs to change.
Your Voice Your Vote - Live Now
What are the policies and issues that affect your recovery and the lives of others in addiction and recovery? We explore the importance of voting and representation at a local and national level.
