Addictions UK International Partnership with Hope Trust (India)

Addictions UK and the Hope Trust of India have been working together on several mutually beneficial addictions treatment initiatives since the beginning of March 2014.  During this time our working relationship has grown considerably and in August 2018 Hope Trust opened a liaison office here in the United Kingdom which will, for the first time, provide services to the local community.

Staff co-operation:  In October 2018 staff from Addictions UK will once again be visiting our colleagues at the Hope Trust for two weeks and participating in group work training courses and other addiction treatment outreach work within the community.  This visit will permit our respective staff teams to further enhance our symbiotic relationship and to develop new training courses and to study each other’s organisations methodology, best practices and protocols.  Several other successful exchanges have been facilitated during the last four years which have contributed to the success of our partnership.
