It was so brave of recovering alcoholic Jane, now a project worker at client Step By Step Recovery, to share how bad things were, in a bid to encourage others struggling with addiction to reach out for help.
Lockdown and the last eight months, have been tougher than ever for people with addiction problems and those in recovery.
And there’s never been a more important time to highlight the role that specialist addiction support plays.
I was delighted to see that Jane, Step By Step Recovery and it’s outstanding service and team had been featured in iNews, after we shared Jane’s story.
If you are struggling to reach the media with your news:
* Make each approach personal and only send your news to journalists who write about those sorts of topics.
* Make sure you have a ‘real’ story backed up with facts, some great quotes and images.
* Follow-up with a call a couple of days after sending your Press Release – you’d be amazed how many get ‘lost’ in Inboxes, get passed to a colleague or go on a ‘To Do’ list – never to see the light of day.
* Don’t treat all media the same. National reporters will want a really strong story and you’ll need to drop everything else and quickly supply any extra information and images they request and set up any interviews before the opportunity passes and to meet deadlines.
* Regional media need lots of information making their story a strong local one, 1-2 people quoted in their area, backed up with facts and hopefully events. And of course quality photos.
