Recovering Justice was founded by people in recovery from substance use who believe that the criminalisation and stigmatisation of people who use drugs is inhumane, ineffective counterproductive and costly. Backed by international evidence and informed by personal experience they take the position that the current drug policies at a national and international level are one of the greatest barriers to getting into and maintaining long term recovery.
