The Drug Advisory Service Haringey (DASH) celebrated the finale of their Recovery Pride week on 30th March - with a programme of celebratory speeches and a theatrical performance coordinated by the Dual Diagnosis Network. There were also presentations from drug and alcohol services about the range of abstinence-based treatment services available to Haringey service users.

DASH offers a free and confidential service, providing a range of services to drug users, their families, partners and friends in the London Borough of Haringey.

Drug and Alcohol Strategy Manager, Marion Morris, opened the event. "I've worked in the field for something like 30 years, from small community drugs projects to larger services. The part I have always enjoyed the most is working with the service users."

The event included graduate speakers from a range of drug and alcohol treatment services commissioned by DASH. They all spoke of being given new hope through the abstinence-based treatment they received, including Equinox representatives from Brook Drive residential detoxification facility.

Recovery Pride Event - DASHDASH Manager, Colin Chapman, said at the event: "We're here today to celebrate recovery. How exciting and scary it is for people here today in early recovery. It's never too late to find a way out."

Marion also congratulated service users on creating the inspiring 'Be the Change You Want to See' identity for the event - which included branded T-shirts, bags, fliers and posters, with a central image of a face removing a mask.

"There is so much talent out there," Marion said.
