This video highlights the benefits of helping people to recover from drug and alcohol addiction, mental health problems etc, using a lived-experience approach. People who work at The Well have a knowledge, understanding, and lived experience of what service-users who come to them are going through as they have been in their shoes already and can relate and understand to work collaborative to support.
