Focus on Recovery
As part of the new integrated approach to deliver targeted interventions to a wider audience the first group of people have completed the new Focus On Recovery (F.O.R) programme. The new sessions are a joint effort between New Beginnings and Doncaster Alcohol Services and are for anybody who wants to move forward in their recovery who may be struggling with their current situation or have lost some focus. The programme is run over 8 weeks which includes 16 sessions within the DAS building on Hallgate, Doncaster town centre. The sessions are aimed at assisting people to regain or maintain some focus within their recovery, by using the tools/coping strategies and networks gained within these sessions. The sessions have been running since February and feedback from those that have attend has been really positive, with comments like “I wish the programme was longer” to “This has really helped me to move forward in my recovery”. The first group to complete celebrated in true recovery style by receiving graduation certificates along with cake and a toast of schloer.

The New Beginnings Film Project
The idea of the project was for clients to make a film demonstrating that recovery was possible as well as showing how the process works within New Beginnings which is often extremely difficult to capture in a paper document as well as demonstrate. Clients wanted the film to be shown within front line services to give hope and inspiration to other service users that New Beginnings is here and does work.

In May 2010 a group of people with a history of substance misuse addiction got together with Andy Collins a Community Development Worker for NHS Doncaster Drug Strategy to help write lyrics for a song called Wasted Years. The song depicts the desperation and despair of drug use through to hope and the chance to change.
The following short film uses the lyrics of Wasted Years to tell real life stories of peoples struggle to overcome drug addiction and their journey to recovery. Wasted Years was filmed on location in Doncaster and current and ex service users were involved in the planning, filming and production of the film you are now about to see.
