The reasons behind why someone might start using drugs and alcohol are complex and often intertwined with experiences of trauma. This means that more often than not, people become stuck in patterns and cycles of using, so knowing when and how to engage individuals in treatment services is vital for frontline workers.​

In the final episode of this season of the Going Beyond podcast, we speak to David Gill, Founder of Risk & Resilience Training & Consultancy and Ben Davy, Reset Outreach & Referral Manager at Providence Row Charity. We discuss the complex barriers to treatment services, the importance of understanding the cycle of change, and the role of peer mentors in providing support to people using drugs and alcohol.
