I have been working as a keyworker/support worker at east coast recovery for some years now. I have gained many qualifications and a deep understanding of addiction, also patterns of behaviour which make an alcoholic/addict. This has benefited me in my own recovery by seeing the impact of the 12 step programme, and by adding my own experiences in other people’s lives. I can honestly say as an ex-client and member of staff at East Coast Recovery, I now have a fantastic life and promising future with my fiancé, step daughter and child on the way.
