I had been battling drug addiction and dependence from my middle teens, mostly focused around methamphetamines.

This led me to sell drugs to feed my addiction, getting into trouble and hanging around the wrong people that only got me deeper into trouble and lower on my slow downward spiral. I had major trust issues, anxiety, violence problems and almost a God complex which made the judge and jury in my mind.

There is no telling where I would be right now if I had not been caught and briefly imprisoned which resulted in a major well needed detox. I had also been on the brink of overdosing multiple times because of my drug addiction which is a scary thought. Throwing my life away just to get my next fix when life is so precious and not just my own life, but all life.

Since I started counselling with Holyoake I have become better. My trust issues have all but near gone, I barely suffer from anxiety anymore and now generally feel healthier all over. It was not without great difficulty that I attained this state and it will be a constant battle. This battle however is one that I’m now willing to fight and will continue to do so I hope for the rest of my life. I believe that anyone is able to attain nearly anything if they set their mind to it.

I truly thank Holyoake for helping me and giving me the tools to help myself. I also thank Holyoake for helping my mother through this incredibly hard and sensitive time. For without this help I can’t imagine how hard this would have been. Holyoake is a tremendously good company with only the best and amazing counsellors. Thank you, forever grateful for all you have done for me and my family!
