After many years in active addiction I came through ECR as a client in 2014 and got clean and begun my recovery journey.

I gradually progressed through peer mentoring and volunteering to my current role as senior support worker.

My role consists of key working clients and looking after their care plans together with the responsibility of making sure clients medications are supplied on a weekly basis.

I really enjoy my role here as I feel I have had first hand experience of addiction and where this takes you in life , I can use the skills I have been shown in recovery to take care of and pass on to people that are beginning their own journey in recovery.

The 12 Step program has worked for me where every I’ve tried has failed without this I don’t know where I would be.
