The event was intended for people who have experienced drug treatment in any one of the charity's four services – Longreach, Closereach, Broadreach and Ocean Quay – and was also open to their families and friends.
Chief executive Gina Dormer said: "It went very well. We had over 200 people turn up. It was a beautiful day and an all round lovely event.
"It was our 30th anniversary and our reunion so we had clients and their families past and present and staff past and present.
"We wanted to mark the occasion and also the fact there has been so much change in the drug and alcohol sector and the organisation has done incredibly well over that time with over 12,00 people using our services.
"We had four former clients talk about their treatment with us. Some came back after 20 years. It was very moving and reminded us of the problems people have with addiction; it was a very positive and uplifting day."
The event was also attended by the Deputy Lord Mayor and Professor David Best, the organisation's patron, who is working at a global level in the field of drug and alcohol addiction.
