Spectrum hosts third Recovery College

On Thursday 30th August, Spectrum was pleased to host the third Recovery College event in Wakefield.

Held in Wakefield Town Hall, “A Celebration of Recovery” was a learning and networking event aiming to showcase the best of recovery services across Yorkshire and the North East.

Spectrum welcomed over 50 guests to Wakefield Town Hall, as well as partners from Sheffield Hallam University, Aspire Drug & Alcohol Services, Turning Point, CGL and many more. By bringing together academics, service users and treatment providers, the third Recovery College event was a fantastic opportunity to share best practice and discuss challenges facing the recovery community.

Speakers discussed a range of topics including Nurture, the ‘ABCD’ approach, sustainable recovery and the launch of HMP Holme House as a drugs recovery prison.
