The Forward Trust and Action on Addiction are uniting their efforts by merging to create a powerful force for recovery from addiction, at a time when there couldn’t be a greater need for these services.
The charities join forces to reach more people in more places to live their lives free from addiction and the stigma associated with it.
Both charities share a longstanding commitment to helping individuals achieve long term, stable, abstinence-based recovery from addiction, and supporting families affected by addiction.
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on individuals and families who are affected by all forms of addiction. Rates of harmful drinking and drug-related deaths are at an all-time high; gambling addiction is rising exponentially, and families and children are living with the hidden harm of addiction in greater numbers than ever. All this is happening at a time when access to treatment is diminishing.
The two charities have joined forces in response to an ever pressing post-Covid surge in demand, combining their expertise to create a powerful voice to achieve lasting change in relation to addiction and recovery.
