Former drug addicts support September recovery campaign

Sheffield Drug and Alcohol Coordination Team is sponsoring Recovery Month in September to increase awareness of substance use addiction and to celebrate recovery. Hundreds of people who are, or have been affected by addiction will come together to assist those struggling with substance use to find help and support. Sheffield Live! reporter Baillor Jalloh spoke to Mick Hartley, a former drug addict and founder of KickBack Recovery.

Former addict to launch social recovery app

Samuel Bennett, who fell into homelessness through alcoholism, has designed the Meet4acoffee app to support addicts in recovery. Bennett designed the app, which is free to use, following his experience of recovering from addiction and homelessness. The app has been designed so that charities, health organisations and support groups can also use it to create private circles, where they can post events, meetings and photos for those connected to the world of recovery.
