INFORMATION - 2015 Conference London, England The conference will feature two distinct symposiums covering current research and practice in the field of alcohol interventions. Addicted to Recovery? What’s the Big Idea?   New Directions in the Study of Alcohol Group Annual Conference London 21st & 22nd May 2015   In the 1970’s the New Directions Group took on the concept of “Alcoholism”. Their pioneering critiques of the “disease model” and its successors have informed developments in alcohol treatment for nearly 50 years.   In 2015 New Directions explores “Recovery”. Against a background of vested interests scrabbling to claim it for themselves, we will examine the origins of “Recovery” and consider the future for the concept.   Unpicking the issues that surround “Recovery” leading experts will address:           Brain science – over hyped or our only hope?         Gambling – stacking the odds against getting treatment?         New addictions – do we need a campaign for real addiction?         Cuts and more cuts – the impact on research and treatment.         More New Directions – emerging innovations and opportunities in the alcohol field. Wednesday 20th May Local welcome. Conference attendees will be invited to join us at a local restaurant. Thursday 21st May One day attendance available. Friday 22nd May One day attendance available.
