As part of National Tackling Drugs Week we found ourselves at Preston North End’s football stadium to witness Lancashire Drug and Alcohol Action Team’s County Showcase.
There was an expectant audience of people from across the county to listen to words of wisdom from Gail Porter, Mark Gilman and Mark Hindle. The event was hosted by Tom Woodcock and highlighted the progress that has been made over the recent past.
This event touched on the importance of recovery as part of the services delivered in Lancashire and there seemed to be a real impetus to move forward that was summed up in the words of Mark Gilman, NTA Regional Manger.
There was also a piece of cleverly staged drama that will be featured in part two of our visit to Preston.
