People in recovery
Watch the video on this page for personal accounts of recovery from drug and alcohol use. People in recovery need access to a wide variety of resources to help them, known as recovery capital:
Social capital - your friends, family, relationships and social links.
Physical capital – things you can touch, such as accommodation or money.
Human capital - skills, health and personal resources that will help you achieve your goals.
Cultural capital - the values, beliefs and attitudes that you have to help you integrate into the wider community.
The Matrix Project is a team who work with experts in drug treatment, social care, accommodation and benefits to offer help to sex workers across Norfolk.
