Just a quick note to flag-up a free debate taking place tomorrow at the RSA (1pm - 2pm) that might be of interest.  The full title of the event is 'Drugs, Communities and Citizenship: The new ‘recovery’ models for users,' and, as the title suggests, the event is concerned with new models of rehabilitation.

Just a quick note to flag-up a free debate taking place tomorrow at the RSA (1pm - 2pm) that might be of interest.  The full title of the event is 'Drugs, Communities and Citizenship: The new ‘recovery’ models for users,' and, as the title suggests, the event is concerned with new models of rehabilitation.

At the heart of this issue is the question of whether or not a paradigm shift in rehabilitation approaches is needed.  Specifically, it has been argued that we require a shift to new models that are long-term at heart and, most importantly to Connected Communities, that are grounded in the supportive, inclusive and revitalising networks of family and community.  These questions will frame tomorrow's event, with the discussion led by the following expert panel: Stephen Bamber, co-founder, Recovery Academy, Sebastian Saville, Executive Director, Release and Paul Hayes, Head of the National Treatment Agency (NTA).  The event will be chaired by Roger Howard, Chief Executive, UK Drug Policy Commission.

You will need to register to attend this event and can do so here.  In addition you can also find out about the RSA's user-centred drugs services project on the RSA website.
