In this session, we will navigate the intricacies of addiction and recovery. We will learn the language of recovery, strategies for aiding those in recovery services and grasp the concept of an addictive personality. We will also differentiate between individuals in active addiction and those in recovery, explore the potential for multiple addictions and understand the transformative journey of recovery.

About the speaker

The session will be led by Adrienne Arthurs, CEO, and Debbie Coote, Clinical Manager of The Living Room. Debbie is a level 7 trained counsellor with expertise in addiction, group therapy and DBT, while Adrienne’s background centres on social interventions, aiming to empower individuals to become valuable contributors to society and secure a brighter future for generations to come.

The Living Room charity (est.2000) is dedicated to providing free, daytime, abstinence-based group therapy rehabilitation, for adults with various addictions in Hertfordshire. Their team of trained counsellors who have personal experience with recovery, employ person-centred, psychodynamic, psychotherapeutic and CBT approaches.
