Sinn Fein spokesperson for Addiction, Recovery and Wellbeing Thomas Gould TD has today expressed his best wishes to all of those in recovery celebrating International Recovery Day.
Teachta Gould said:
“Today marks the culmination of a wonderful month of celebration of those in recovery. I am proud to be the Sinn Fein spokesperson for people in recovery and am determined to continue to be their voice in the Dail.
“It is so important that we recognise the trojan efforts of people in recovery. Today is about demonstrating and celebrating the ability of those with addictions to achieve long-term sobriety and live productive and healthy lives.
“These are difficult times and the uncertainty and isolation has been a challenge for many. I would like to extend my support to people in recovery today.
“We need to see real action to support people in recovery by the government. Today is about the value of recovery and how individuals in recovery transform from being part of the problem to part of the solution. We need to see the government recognise this.”
