This project set out to test the feasibility and acceptability of the Moving On In My Recovery (MOIMR) programme. MOIMR is a 12-session, acceptance-based cognitive behavioural group programme that was co-produced and is co-facilitated by treatment professionals and service users in recovery (Hogan, 2016). The primary aim of MOIMR is to bridge the gap between formal treatment provision and mutual aid (i.e., to assist service users who have attained a period of abstinence in treatment to access wider mutual aid).

Key findings

  • The Moving On In My Recovery programme is a viable intervention for a larger randomised control effectiveness trial.
  • The measures used in the study were acceptable to participants.
  • Recruitment into groups that have previously been established within a service location are likely to have better retention rates than newly established group programmes.
  • Service users’ involvement in the research process is highly valued and recommended for future endeavours.
  • Moving On In My Recovery appears to have good ecological validity and promising outcomes.
