Abstract

Ex-military personnel who are recovering from addictions are more likely to succeed in recovery through veteran specific services, new research has revealed. The research, carried out by Sheffield Hallam University’s Helena Kennedy Centre for International Justice on behalf of charities Addaction and Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT), looked at the work of the Right Turn project, which has been developed to support veterans who are recovering from addiction and helping them reintegrate in to civilian life. Addaction's Right Turn initiative, the first of its kind in the UK when launched, is a pioneering project operating on the premise that the comradeship underpinning military life can be re-directed to support recovery from addictions and desistance from crime. The report presents the findings from the two year evaluation.
