In the course of your work, do you increasingly encounter patients/clients with alcohol or drug problems or addictive behaviours? Are you confident that you are doing the best for them – and yourself, that you are following best practice? If your answers are “yes”, “no” and “no”, then this intense fully rounded ‘crash course’ in how to recover from addiction is for you. You will meet more people and learn more at DB Recovery+ than you could from months of research. In response to demand, the 6th DB Recovery+ conference on how to help people recover from addictive substances and behaviours is dedicated to both experts (hello again!) and those who more and more often in the course of their work come face to face with people who have alcohol and drug problems, but who are not specifically trained to handle them. It is hugely rewarding to witness experts and those thirsting for knowledge meet up with each other and forge long-term professional relationships which are mutually supportive and help vulnerable people in our care.
