PDF (Conference highlights & presentations) - Published Version

More than 100 people from a wide variety of community and statutory services in Dublin’s north inner city attended a recent conference on addiction recovery in the Aisling Hotel, Parkgate Street.

Organised by the Northwest Inner City Network and Soilse, the conference was entitled ‘Let’s Talk About Recovery’. It opened with an overview of a groundbreaking study, Addiction Recovery: A Contagious Paradigm. This was followed by a moving testimonial from a former Soilse participant who is now a recovery coach.

Four workshops on ‘recovery and services’ and ‘recovery and communities’ brought a range of insightful contributions from those attending the conference. After a feedback session, the conference heard two further presentations, one looking at the experiences and views of people in recovery, the other exploring how national policy supports the recovery agenda. The conference concluded with remarks from Gerry McAleenan, head of Soilse.
