Community for Recovery has been set up by Re-Solv and Solve It, who are the two UK agencies that work to prevent solvent abuse (officially known as ‘volatile substance abuse or ‘VSA’) and support all those whose lives are affected by it. Solvent abuse is rarely talked about. It has a much lower profile than other, illicit drugs. As a result, those affected by if often feel lonely or isolated – but please don’t suffer alone. We hope that this website will bring people together to build a Community that helps and supports all its members on their individual journeys to recovery.

Realiteen stands for reality of teenage lives. Realiteen have produced an educational DVD for parents of teenagers in particular. We named the DVD -THINK ABOUT IT.... as that's exactly our aim - to make people think about and bring awareness to these taboo and sometimes ignored subjects and to give parents confidence to approach their children regarding these issues. As a parent we sometimes tend to ignore certain issues in the hope that schools will educate our children enough to make the right choices in life. This is clearly not the right thing to do, as there are still so many problems in our country with these four issues in particular. Parents' opinions are conscious and subconsciously important to children as they grow up, so therefore it is best that parents share their opinions with their children; especially on these topics instead of never mentioning them and hoping for the best.
