Alastair Roy's insight:

Great example of a pilot project in which very cheap SMS technology was used to support people leaving alcohol detox. Great results and I think a new pilot is underway.

Video: Robert Stephens: Projecting the truth about addiction. - by FEAD | Arts, culture and addiction | Scoop.it
Cinema and modern conceptions of drug addiction emerged nearly simultaneously in the late- 19th century.
Alastair Roy's insight:

Nice presentation on narratives of addiciton in film which emphasises how the visual narratives of film offer two main stories of addiciton - ruin or redemption. Stephens describes how audience expectation operates as a limiting factor in the emergence of new narratives and implies that this is a problem becuase it reinforces dominant ideas around addiciton at the level of policy.

Culture Change: Art, Culture and the Addiction Recovery Agenda

Alastair Roy's insight:

Recovery is the new orthodoxy in the field of substance misuse in the UK and for the first time it is an explicit goal of treatment. Recovery is contested both as a concept and as a policy objective and the UK evidence base is currently limited. This seminar presents initial interpretations from a Wellcome Trust funded project called ADDICT. Developed by Portraits of Recovery, a socially engaged visual arts charity based in Manchester, ADDICT is an interdisciplinary research project exploring processes of recovery. It is delivered as a collaboration between artists, social and biomedical scientists, treatment agencies and people in recovery. The project uses socially engaged arts both as a form of engagement as well as a mode of inquiry into recovery

 

In the project International Lens Based Artist Melanie Manchot is working collaboratively with people at differing stages of recovery in London, Liverpool, Manchester and Oxford over a six month period. Portraiture as dialogue is the main conceptual premise. The arts practice is accompanied by a series of interdisciplinary discussions and two visual imaging matrices. These are used as different devices for understanding what emerges through the practice as well as exploring the subject recovery.

An interesting eclectic approach to examine the issues involved in making the journey towards 'recovery' overcoming stigma and internalised and externalised discrimination
