I’m proof that recovery is possible if you start talking openly and honestly about your addiction.Toby
Toby was a resident in 2015, and he was recently invited back to talk to current residents and staff at one of our Recovery Conventions. This is what he had to say about it:
“It was amazing to go back and speak to the current residents seven years after I was a resident myself, and incredible to be given the opportunity to speak to those currently receiving treatment. It was also so nice to see some of the staff who helped me so much.
What I learnt whilst at rehab still helps me everyday. I hope it’s the first of many trips back. I’m proof that recovery is possible if you start talking openly and honestly about your addiction. Something that I learnt the hard way. I bottled things up for a long time, which nearly killed me. When I started implementing the things I was being taught, my life changed forever.
Thank you to everyone who listened on the day and good luck! Recovery is possible.”
