Spectrum celebrates at the Recovery Games 2018

Over the past 12 months, Spectrum has been developing our expertise in substance misuse across the North of England.

As well as providing clinical services for people struggling with drugs and alcohol, we’re passionate about celebrating visible recovery – including in secure environments, where we provide non-clinical Recovery services.

Our commitment to Recovery led us the annual Recovery Games In August, taking place in Hatfield’s Outdoor Activity Centre. Spectrum staff from across the North West joined service users to compete in a range of challenges throughout the day, including a kayak relay, archery competition, Colour Run and climbing wall activity. Spectrum’s Head of Healthcare in HMP Kirkham said, “Everyone at this event has been affected by addiction, either through their own experience or that of friends and family. Coming together for an event like this is inspiring and shows that recovery is possible and achievable.”

Hosted by Aspire Drug and Alcohol Services, the annual Games are one of the most popular events in the Recovery calendar, inviting hundreds of guests from across the UK to compete each year.

Spectrum didn’t walk away with the trophy this time, but we loved taking part – we’ll be back next year!
