Caroline: It’s hard in recovery… but it is worth it!

I am a service user, now in recovery from alcohol.  I was chuffed to be involved with the ADS filming of recovery stories. It was really good to see how enthusiastic people can be in their willingness to help others by spreading the message that recovery is possible

I have battled back from addictions to drugs and alcohol to reclaim my life and family. If somebody out there now is still using or drinking, you can get your life back. It’s hard in recovery but it’s better than being picked up from the gutter. And you can do it. I did.

I have been supported in my recovery by The East Riding Partnership, a service which ADS delivers in partnership with Humber NHS Foundation Trust; and by the East Riding Aftercare Service which is delivered by ADS
