The 2012 UKESAD symposium was held at the Guoman Tower Hotel in London on May 10, 11 and 12. It was a success and was well worth attending. Our booth was covered by two of our dedicated volunteers and we also had the support of Lady and Lord Sandwich, our Recovery Road Patron and her husband.
The outcome of exhibiting at the symposium is that we connected with a significant number of professionals and organisations and had in-depth conversations about dependency and withdrawal including the range of symptoms and duration. We did as much as possible to increase awareness.
It was a positive experience which attained our goal of promoting awareness and so we can conclude that our “Mission has been accomplished.”
