Turning Point Scotland is delighted to announce that they will again be attending this year’s Recovery Connects Music Festival on Sunday 29th May, showcasing their ‘Seeds of Recovery’ theme.
Turning Point Scotland’s unique, high-quality alcohol and other drug services, from the earliest engagement, plant the seeds of recovery. The services have a strong link between harm reduction and recovery with importance placed on improving and maintaining connections to family, friends, and communities.
Turning Point Scotland’s stall will have a range of activities from face painting, ‘messages of hope’, and windowsill gardening workshops sowing peas led by Scotland Grows editor, M.T. O’Donnell. This activity is suitable for all ages and needs no prior knowledge or skill.
Peas are one of the best plant-based sources of thiamine, which is an important vitamin especially for people drinking too much alcohol. High in vitamin C, zinc, fibre, protein, and lots of other protective nutrients, peas seeds are cheap to buy and grow, and a rich source of all sorts of nutrients that are useful for people using alcohol and other drugs problematically.
Members of Turning Point Scotland’s Overdose Response Team will also be at the stall to provide training and awareness on Naloxone: evidence based intervention which can reverse the effects of opioid overdose.
There will be sweet treats and giveaways too! Come and join them at the event in Queen’s Park, Glasgow, to find out more about Turning Point Scotland’s unique, high-quality alcohol and other drug services, which from the earliest engagement, plant the seeds of recovery.
