Our support can help you enjoy a life free of substance misuse.

I was homeless for four years, moving between hostels, refuges, night shelters and on the street. Things needed to change. I was running from one nightmare to the next. Once an addict always an addict.

But with a lot of honesty and control, I stayed clean and could see a future beyond addiction. I discovered you have to love yourself so people can love you too. In short, getting help has changed my life.

Alex's story
I used to think the term 'recovery' meant getting better after some kind of unfortunate experience. But now, 'to recover' means to improve. So how long do I want my recovery to last? Forever, of course. My recovery is mine, it's my time, being spent my way - and the results will come from my choices.
