Testimonials from delegates at past Recovery Plus events

Banner for dbwebsite #1

“I’m a mental-health nurse, working in addictions for most of my 35 year nursing career and recovery. I also work closely with and support family/carers. I have attended many conventions and conferences but found the Recovery Plus day on family and interventions to be incredibly inspirational, stimulating and moving; I learnt a lot.
It has encouraged me to further my training and I am applying to start in September for a Foundation Course in Family Therapy.”

Angie Cullen RMN FDAP, Family liaison at Partnerships in Care, The Manor Clinic.

“I have been involved with the recovery community for 20 years. In 2015, Summit Diagnostics sent a team to the Recovery Plus conference in London. We were so impressed with the quality of the show, organisation, networking opportunities and quality of speakers – that we took up sponsorship for 2016.
We felt/feel that this conference and the online Recovery Plus publications are a fantastic way to keep up with the events that shape this industry and to contribute to the recovery effort of the many professionals in the UK and US.
Indeed, I am such a fan that I became co-publisher of Recovery Plus journal!” 

George Powell, President of Summit Diagnostics.

“Recovery Plus was a really significant opportunity for us to meet people in the sector and share ideas and best practice. It was an extremely upbeat and positive experience.”

Mark Jones, Programme Manager at Steps2Recovery.

“Our presence at Recovery Plus generated a great deal of interest and we were delighted to be able to go on to develop some solid business connections with fellow exhibitors.”

Ray Hood, Director of Recovery Spaces.

“We both work as crisis counsellors in a large corporate company and were delighted by the value and professional benefit of the two days. We thoroughly enjoyed the seminars and felt better equipped in our work to support people in recovery. We found the speakers inspirational and the treatment centres represented  gave us lots of very useful literature and books. We strongly recommend others in any organisation that supports those with any kind of dependency or in recovery to attend Recovery Plus. It gave such a wide range of useful information on many levels and areas. Thank you.”

Josephine Hart, Drug educator/ Counsellor at Hope UK and British Airways


Daniela Collins PhD candidate, MSc Mental Health, PGcert(Ed), BSc (Hons) Nurs, FHEA, RNMHL1, LPE Nurs, RNT, Qualified professional performance coach – and Senior lecturer in Mental Health Nursing at Middlesex University

“May 2016 was my first time at Recovery Plus, and it surpassed my expectations. The intervention training was extremely insightful and has helped me no end with my role as an addiction consultant. I look forward to next year’s event.”

Jonathan Edgeley, Sober Services

“As a delegate at all Recovery Plus events so far, I recommend them for their  exceptional economic value as well as being high standard professional CPD events, with accreditation evidence, while also being unique networking opportunities for delegates.”

John George Graham, Therapeutic counsellor/Addiction specialist.

“I found the whole day extremely enjoyable and it was good to network with other third-sector organisations whilst at the same time increase the awareness of our organisation among the many delegates and speakers. Thank you for making the day such a success.”

Elaine R, Al-Anon Family Groups

“Stimulating and thought provoking. Will be making changes in my practice.”

Sally Pincott, Alcohol service lead at Cardinal Clinic
