3 June 2019 Speaker Meeting – “Supporting People with Addiction” Mark Wiseman

Mark Wiseman spoke to us about the Living Room in Stevenage, an award winning addiction recovery support centre for people living with all types of addictions – drugs, alcohol, shopping, shoplifting… Unless dealt with, addiction will remain a chronic condition, incorporating cycles of relapse and recovery. The impact on families and communities can be devastating. A few years ago now, our club visited the Living Room and we were privileged and humbled to listen to women telling us of their experiences, including how their addictions would have led to a custodial sentence without the support of the Living Room.

The Living Room is one of the Charities the SI Hertford & District support.  We have 2 collections a year amongst club members and friends providing essentials that they need day to day and they will also accept donations for their shop in Ware.

Kate thanks Mark Wiseman for his presentation
