Meet... Dan

Dan is the Prehab Coach in the Gateshead Team. His role involves supporting people to get started on the pathway into residential rehab, through the Step Forward program. He also facilitates some of our community groups.

We asked Dan why working for Recovery Connections is so special: ‘There is a willingness to try alternatives if something isn’t quite working out the way we planned; the service is adaptable and the staff are resilient – it makes us strong.’

Dan’s advice for someone looking to begin their own recovery journey is to keep your expectations low and simple in the beginning – there will be plenty of time to do the things you want to do, it’s all a process.

What some people may not know about Dan is that he is a yoga teacher and a graffiti artist!
