  Abstract This dissertation investigated a gap in the addictions field that employ people with lived experiences. The gap identified was the lack of support for the Organisation, Manager, Colleagues, and the staff member with lived experience who navigate the pathway from being a client to being a staff member. Roles and responsibilities change drastically and unless supported the change can and most often has negative effects. The intention was to contribute recommendations that will contribute towards creating a best practice guideline manual to support the organisation to develop, manage and implement robust systems more effectively.

These systems will consider how to minimise risk to their organisation, the staff member with lived experience, the colleagues of this staff member, the manager, and ultimately the clients accessing the organisation. The research included a literature review and interviews with addiction service managers and staff who have lived experience. As a result of the research there are four recommendations that have been identified for further research.
