Fiona Dunwoodie, BSc
My mother (Dot) and I set up 1ne (formerly known as WACS) in 1987. I passionately believe that abstinence is the only way and over the years we have helped thousands of people from all walks of life find freedom through abstinence. 1ne is a therapeutic community where you’ll always be greeted by a friendly face and a professional service.
I have worked at 1NE for 10 years on the day programme. I started as a volunteer and then became a sessional worker. In 2007 I set up NE Teens. NE Teens is our counselling service for young people affected by another’s addiction. In 2016 I became Clinical Lead. I have an BSc in social work and an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling. I am experienced in working with domestic violence and trauma. When you come into 1NE you will see me sitting in reception.
