Abstract or description

During the first year of the RECOVEU project, the Consortium collected data regarding the policy and practice in the field of addiction treatment, education and social reintegration in all five countries.One of the major issues confronting policy makers and practitioners in the field of addiction and recovery is the lack of specific data concerning the access of adults in recovery to learning resources that enable them to recover and re‐integrate into society.
Consulting with both adults in recovery and service providers will support awareness of the issues prevalent in recovering addicts’ lives and lead to the development of adult education which is responsive to the specific barriers this may raise. This will ensure that the adult education curriculum developed during the project will meet the needs of people in recovery, thereby increasing the potential for successful engagement and retention.
Work Package 4 – Focus Group Phase has supported an understanding of the part played by adult education in an individual’s recovery process and provides a way in which people in recovery could be supported to engage in adult education opportunities.
Each of the five partners delivered three to five focus groups, either with service users or service providers. The total number of participants was 92 (44 service users and 48 service providers), with a total number of 20 groups delivered across all partners. This review outlines the key findings from these focus groups.
