A MOVEMENT FOR CHANGE
new voluntary group led by people recovering from substance
misuse has recently been set up in Perth. The initiative,
supported by P&K Alcohol and Drugs Partnership, is being managed
through PLUS, a third sector organisation based in the centre of
town. PLUS, well known locally for mental health campaigning,
was awarded the funding to facilitate the group as a result of
past successes in the field of service user involvement, anti
stigma work and recovery.
The main objectives of Inspiral include,
■Utilise the lived experience of its
members to promote recovery from substance misuse.
■Provide accurate information in the field of substance misuse
locally and nationally
■Deliver training and hold awareness raising events to develop
more understanding of substance misuse
■Give people who have experienced substance misuse a voice at
planning meetings for more person- centred services.
■Establish up local recovery networks
■Challenge the stigma associated with substance misuse.
