                  CHAIR –RGUK (RECOVERY GROUP UK)
 Recovery begins the day that a service user
  walks through the door of any service
 Recovery is an individualised journey that
  has many routes in and out, with many
 Recovery is about change, doing
  something different.
                 Drug & alcohol services working in silos

                             No Integration of services

                     No respect of the value of Partnerships

                                  No Collaboration

        No Ownership by commissioner’s - a blank cheque

   Out of County – relocate or return with no support system

             Local Professionals had never seen recovery

                      Family – sitting outside the process
           Community Rehab built on and incorporated into the current system -
                                    across the Tiers.

           Collaborators in a seamless whole systems approach, removing silos of

                           Sharing of resources, information and experience.

                                Ownership by Commissioners, GP’s, Police

       Partnerships with agencies who historically sit outside the treatment sector.

                            Community ownership of the Recovery Journey

                                     COMMUNICATION !
   A model that does not divide the treatment sector
   A model that is inclusive, not exclusive
   A model that unites us and places the service users
    aspirations at the heart of delivery
   A model that will enable us to move the Drug &
    Alcohol debate forward – in that no-one size fits
    all and the Recovery Journey begins when a
    service user walks through any of our doors
   A model that is commissioned to provide choice,
    promote ambition and offers equality in service
