Biography

John came to the Addictions department at KCL in 2017 to undertake the MSc in Addictions, supported by a bursary from the Society for the Study of Addiction. Prior to this he spent seven years working as a drug and alcohol practitioner in criminal justice, recovery, and outreach services in Haringey, North London.

John won the IoPPN prize scholarship, which enabled him to undertake his PhD research into the profile of alcohol use disorder in suicidal patients accessing psychiatric crisis care and addictions treatment settings.
