Welcome to Recovery Rises 

Welcome to 'Recovery Rises' The UK's first online magazine, produced with service users, to raise awareness of recovery from addiction.
  • The pain, destruction and loneliness of active addiction affects millions of people every day, but millions are also recovering. 
  • Our magazine celebrates recovery which is possible for anyone. 
  • The magazine covers all areas of addiction and recovery, and anyone can contribute to it. 
  • Recovery Rises online is produced and published by Genie In The Gutter. 
  • We are a not for profit company and all income raised is used to further recovery. 
  • It’s appropriate that “Recovery Rises” is based in Liverpool – the city with the UK’s fastest growing recovery movement.
