About the event

We are delighted to announce that on the 23rd May at 5pm the APPG for 12 Step Recovery will hold its next Evidence Session, "Addiction, Recovery & Employment: from Cost to Contribution"

As we know, addiction has a significant impact on employment in the UK. The 12-step programmes support employment by helping individuals in recovery to maintain sobriety, improve their mental health, build a support network, learn coping skills, address underlying issues, and develop a sense of purpose. These factors positively impact an individual's ability to find and maintain employment and to perform well in their jobs.

We are honoured to confirm the following speakers:

* Tony Adams, MBE, ex-Arsenal & England captain, will join us to share his wealth of knowledge and experience in supporting addicts and alcoholics back into long-term employment.

* Dame Carole Black will present evidence from the extensive work that she has published over the years in the field of addiction and recovery, and

* Dr Jill Miller, Senior Diversity and Inclusion Policy Adviser at the CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development), will present the findings of their report: Addiction in the workplace.

The goals of the evidence session are:

1. For employers / employees - particularly Human Resources officers across all sectors - to be made aware of the importance of 12 Step Recovery in improving the productivity and wellbeing of recovering/recovered people.

2. For our supporters in Parliament, the NHS, police forces, prisons and academia - to emphasise how 12 Step fellowships have been successfully supporting recovering people find and maintain employment for many decades.
