Why alcohol and drug users plan the best services

Public Health England has launched a new guide showing the benefits of involving recovering alcohol and drug users in the design and development of treatment and recovery for themselves and others.

PHE’s service user involvement guide describes four different levels of service user involvement, from co-developing one’s own care plan through to initiating and running recovery-focused enterprises. The guide showcases a number of examples of unique services from across the country that have been set-up by, or run by, former alcohol and drug users.
