Jacqueline Hollows, founder of Beyond Recovery (BR), will be a speaker at The Principles of Addiction Recovery Conference later this month. She will be joined by five BR apprentices, who recently formed their own community group.

The conference is eagerly anticipated and will be entirely online this year. It takes place on the 18th and 19th September.

Derrick, Omar, Alfie, Chris, Thulani and Jacqueline will be among thirty international Three Principles experts, practitioners and authors speaking at the conference. Together they will explore how The Principles provide the missing link in awakening transformation in people with addictions.


Over two days, the speakers will illuminate the misunderstandings of the current paradigm of psychology, while exploring that of The Three Principles.

This ‘new paradigm’ is about helping people to find freedom as well as sobriety. The key to recovery from addiction is a transformational experience that shifts people’s whole perspective of life. Attendees will learn how this can be brought into a therapeutic setting – and solidified by showing people how their transformation has occurred.


Professionals, students, and individuals for whom addiction and co-occurring disorders have touched their lives will benefit from attending the conference. It will cover the following fundamental elements:

·         preventing stress and burnout

·         preventing relapse and transfer of addictions

·         facilitating insight and transformation in clients

·         seeing the common denominator in all addictions and mental illness

·         focusing on health recovery versus disease treatment

·         simplifying the treatment process


Beyond Recovery is a social enterprise established by Jacqueline more than five years ago. Its mission is to revolutionise the way addictions and mental health are viewed and treated and also to eliminate stigma.

BR achieves this by sharing an understanding of how our experience of life is created from our own minds; based on The Three Principles. Such pioneering work has the potential to reform the criminal justice system from the inside out. In fact, the impact of BR’s innovative programmes on the lives of people they work with, and the broader community, has been described as ‘phenomenal’.

Jacqueline said: “I have been working within the criminal justice system (with support professionals and people with convictions) since 2014.  And I’ve seen that through fresh thought in any moment, a deeper level of common sense, wellbeing and resilience is always available – regardless of circumstances.”  


Apprentices Derrick Mason, Omar Wilson, Alfie Chambers, Christopher Mavinga and Thulani Khumalo have each experienced a considerable personal transformation with the help of The Three Principles understanding. They took part in the Beyond Recovery programme at HMP Onley in Warwickshire and, since leaving prison, have continued to use the understanding in their daily lives and relationships.

‘The Fab Five’, as they have been nicknamed, spoke compellingly at the 2020 Three Principles UK Conference. Since then, they have formed a community group called ‘Beyond Truth’. Its’ purpose is to help them share what they’ve learned and to transform the lives of others in their communities.

The guys from Beyond Truth are now looking forward to joining Jacqueline and the other speakers at The Principles of Addiction Recovery Conference.
