WHAT PEOPLE SAY

What did you find benificial?

“Understanding, in detail,  more about the brain during detox.”

— Simon James. Recovery Coordinator

Within different regions, or countries, there can be different terminology used. For example, CPD can be known as Continuing Education (CE) or Continuing Professional Education (CPE) or Continuing Education Units (CEU). It is important to note that these terms are completely interchangeable with CPD, and are both focused on a structured approach to lifelong learning.
