I wish him every success

It was great to read about Mark Gilman in the Guardian recently, pointing out the great resource the fellowship has to offer and his aim for the country's addiction treatment services to tap into what he and many others regard as an underused resource.

The notion of using community based fellowships like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous backed by peer support which is available 365 days a year, 24 hours a day with the history of success it has, can only be a good thing especially given its nil financial cost.

Delphi is very excited to be able to provide a clinical gateway for dependent patients into the fellowship and I can only wish Mark every success in convincing health commissioners and providers into referring more service users to these groups.
