News item posted: 19 June 2017

In November Turning Point's substance misuse services joined with supporters, including staff, partner agencies and commissioners, to celebrate recovery and reintegration across the North East & Cumbria.

The evening was an opportunity to share and celebrate success and achievements across the region and bring people together to expand their social networks.

The Newcastle Eagles Basketball coach, Fabulous Flournoy, was also a guest speaker at the event.

Clair O' Connor, Acting Operations Manager at Turning Point's Gateshead Services said; 'We know that recovery is different for everyone and we wanted to acknowledge this and learn from each other's experiences. The event was a great opportunity for service users, ex service users, peer mentors and forum members to meet and inspire each other'.

"I would like to thank everyone who supported and attended the event, in particular ESH Group who, as main sponsor of the Newcastle Eagles Basketball Team, provided our guest speaker as well as prizes including signed Eagles Kit and game tickets. "
