The Essex Recovery Foundation (ERF)


The Essex Recovery Foundation covers the whole of Essex and want to engage with people who are in recovery from drug or alcohol addiction in order to amplify their voice and experience in order to help shape future services and support.
We believe that those who have experience addition, services and recovery are best placed to shape how services are designed and commissioned. Our vision is that people with lived experience in Essex are central to this process. In addition, we want to make Essex a place where people in addiction are supported to enter treatment, where everyone knows how to access high quality services and once treatment is over, people are supported in their ongoing recovery in the place that they live. We need ideas, views and opinions and help to build a voice who can revolutionise recovery in Essex.
