About Andrew has been involved in the addictions field for the past 15 years, training at Clouds House and Broadreach House before joining Priory Healthcare in 1998. Andrew started his career with The
Priory as an Addictions Counsellor before becoming Programme Manager and then Hospital Director at the Priory Hospital Sturt and at Farm Place.

Up until December 2005, he was managing the addictions unit at the Priory Hospital Roehampton, bringing with the position an agenda for change and innovation to the programme. He was also a member of Priory Healthcare’s multidisciplinary specialist network group for addictions. He has written a number of articles and has been actively involved in media work promoting the treatment of addictions. Andrew has trained in Structured Interventions which forms part of Nova Vida’s work.

His main interests are programme development, training and greater co-operation between professionals – to this aim, he has travelled extensively studying programme delivery in various settings. He is an enthusiastic supporter of UKESAD and was part of the organising Committee since its inception in 2004 until he moved to Portugal. He is now involved with his colleagues at Nova Vida and in the USA to bring quality training and professional development in the field of addictions treatment to Europe.
