My Story by Laura a recovery drug addict
Laura approached the service for help and no matter who comes into our path we always help as much as we can and below is her story. It is pretty heart warming.
I came into treatment aged thirty-one and three stone underweight. I lived a life of disruption full of impulsive and erratic behaviour. My life was unmanageable and I went beyond any realms of morality I had implemented before my using. Any friends I had accumulated over the years had given me a wide berth.

I was extremely malnourished and breathing in fresh air even seemed like hard work. I was somewhat oblivious to the fact the problem was staring me in the face. It was me.
