I attended Clinks service user involvement event on Friday 21st October 2016
The event included a presentation from Open Road (drugs, alcohol service) led by Anna Trudgian, Operations Manager at Open Road, a charity providing individual care and practical help across East Anglia, to empower individuals, families and communities in their journey of recovery from the harmful effects of drugs, alcohol and other addictions.
Open Road service users also attended and they played a moving video describing the difference the service they received made to them.
The service users created the video independently and it was a wonderful testimonial to the services Open Road offer.
Open Road drop in events are FREE to service users to support their own recovery.
There is a list below of events in Loughton, Harlow and Waltham Abbey
Services include Mindfulness and Auricular Acupuncture.

Mindfulness is the psychological process of bringing one’s attention to the internal and external experiences occurring in the present moment, which can be developed through the practice of meditation and other training.
Auriculotherapy, or auricular therapy, or ear acupuncture, or auriculoacupuncture is a form of alternative medicine based on the idea that the ear is a microsystem which reflects the entire body, represented on the auricle, the outer portion of the ear.
Conditions affecting the physical, mental or emotional health of the patient are assumed to be treatable by stimulation of the surface of the ear exclusively.
Similar mappings are used in many areas of the body, including the practices of reflexology and iridology. These mappings were not originally based on or supported by any medical or scientific evidence.
