The purpose of the #MoreThanThat campaign is to highlight the person within the struggle.

By defining ourselves based on the struggles we face we limit our potential.

At the end of the day, addiction is highly treatable from which the majority of people eventually recover and contribute to our society in numerous and meaningful ways.

During this year’s Campaign we will hosting empowering health fairs, community events, podcasts, conferences and our annual Recovery Walk, all championing the full potential of people in recovery.

So, struggling with substance use or being a person in recovery doesn’t mean that you are incapable, weak, or unworthy.

You are much more than that.

How do YOU define


Words have power.

And so do the stories we tell.

The labels we choose to describe ourselves paint a picture of us as we see ourselves. But the reality is we’re all more than any one thing.

We’re more than our worst flaw, our biggest regret, and our worst moments.

We’re more than the sum of our mistakes.

The challenges and consequences of addiction can be so deep and painful that they become the headlines of a person’s life.

They cast a shadow of shame and powerlessness that can feel impossible to escape.

But WE are the authors of our own stories, and we get to decide how to write the next chapters.

Our event will also feature a range of services such as mental health support, addiction services, education/employment/training support, housing/benefit support, and fitness/mindfulness demonstrations.

Join us 13th September for Northern Ireland’s largest Addiction Recovery Conference, hosted by ARC as part of our #morethanthat campaign. We understand that life’s challenges can be daunting, but for individuals struggling with addiction, these challenges can be overwhelming and paralysing. Our conference aims to celebrate and highlight the importance of hope and possibility in the face of addiction.

The ‘More than That’ theme embraces the resilience and strength of individuals in recovery, acknowledging the challenges they have faced while celebrating their ability to overcome and contribute positively to society. Throughout the conference, you will have the opportunity to hear from professionals, academics, and most importantly, individuals with lived experiences, showcasing that anyone, regardless of their past, has the courage and capacity to turn their life around and achieve great things.

As we continue our efforts to break the stigma surrounding substance use, we invite you to be part of this transformative conference. Together, let’s promote hope, inspire change, and empower individuals to embrace a life of recovery and growth.

Join us at the ARC Addiction Recovery Conference this September and be part of a movement that values resilience, courage, and the potential for positive change. Together, we can make a difference.
