Recovery is a fact

How can we make this statement?
Because it is our Truth and Lived Experience.

Who are AiR?

Aberdeen in recovery (AiR) as an organisation and its members do not proffer to provide formal service or support for individuals. Rather we are blossoming Recovery Community of activists who are willing to share of their recovery experience that they may offer a peer example to others who may be looking to embark on a journey of change .

To be a bridge from “dependence” to “independence” for the individual seeking recovery from problematic substance use and addictive behaviours.
A society which Celebrates Visible Recovery and accepts its responsibility to participate by identifying solutions to the conditions in which addiction thrives.
The relief of the needs of those seeking to recover from addiction, their families and friends, and in furtherance of this by; 1. Promoting the availability of support and resources of all kinds. 2. Working in partnership with other bodies to achieve these purposes.
