"Recovery from meth addiction"
Posted by Healed (as ),
I was looking for a rehab when I first contacted Kirsty through Shanty Creek and my psychiatrist recommended Shanty Creek and knew the region well. I was looking to change my life and wanted something different from the city and wanted to be in the country away from high risk. I chose this rehab because I could be more honest, let my barriers down without temptation. I had spoken to many rehabs and found Lives Lived Well more understanding of my criminal past and my need for help. My worker understood my unique situation. I was at a time when I wanted change. I continued to work with my worker via phone whilst I was in prison and felt supported knowing I had a safe place to come upon release. I successfully completed my resi without incident and transitioned to Lives Lived Well Transition House in Cairns where I continued with the support of Transition Worker to keep me on the straight and narrow and complete my goals. Transition House Cairns allowed me to successfully achieve in my cert 111 in community service. I also received support from CREST (Community Re-Entry Service Team) Cairns. I now have my own unit, have completed work placement and am volunteering my time and loving the experience. There are so many things I want to achieve whilst a volunteer that would not have been possible without the support of Lives Lived Well.
