Building Recovery

Helping to support those who are struggling with addictions

Building Recovery is a complete online training course for pastoral workers who want to support those with addictions. The aim is to educate and inform churches around addiction and how to work with and support people who are struggling with addictive lifestyles. Built into the training is guidance on how to run a ‘Building Recovery’ group.

A word from Dave

Everyone is unique

My approach is based upon thirty years of experience and practice. Each person, relationship and story is unique. The unique experience you have and I have will connect us more than separate us.


Kind words from previous course delegates

The course offered me a structure on which I can build my contact with heroin addicts. I now have the confidence to interact with my clients. Great day. Excellent quality.


Recovery Coach, Preston Drug and Alcohol Service

This workshop gave me a greater understanding of addiction and clarification of a successful approach to working with those who wish to break the cycle of their addictions. I just wanted to say thank you. The workshop was much appreciated.


Psychologist, NHS

Thank you for a brilliant day with so much detailed information. Your experiences are so relevant and needed today.
