Turn it around

Let’s turn it around.

Our ‘turn it around’ campaign has been developed by members of the County Durham Drug and Alcohol Recovery Services. .

It features messaging and photography which has been produced in collaboration with the people supported by our service who live in County Durham. We want you to know that even when life feels like it has been flipped upside down, we can still turn it around together.

A guide to being Healthier, Happier, Harm Free

As part of ‘turn it around’, the people we support have also developed a guide to being Healthier, Happier, Harm Free. It’s all about living a life that is meaningful to you, where your health, wellbeing and safety is the number one priority.

The downloadable booklet features 40 practical tips and pieces of advice written by people with lived experience of drug and alcohol issues who have accessed support from our service, and turned their lives around. With their words, they hope to support you to also become happier, healthier and harm-free.
