"My second chance!"

About: Alcohol and Drug Counselling - Beenleigh (Lives Lived Well) Logan House Residential Rehabilitation Facility

(as a service user),

Over ten years my addiction went from being an every now and then thing to blowing out into everyday use. My life, marriage, work, family slowly started falling apart, I lost my house, cars, family, everything due to my addiction and hit rock bottom late 2018. Early 2019, after trying to end my pain twice I decided to reach out and do something. That's when I contacted Lives Lived Well and spoke with Erica, she was amazing and kept in contact with me until I was able to enter Logan House Rehab.

Upon arriving at Logan House I was met with wonderful friendly staff and instantly felt like I was in the right place. Through my treatment I was able to learn so much about myself and many tools I now use to deal with what life throws at me. I would like to pay a special thank you to the wonderful staff especially - Jenelle, Mary, Branka & Joe. I am forever changed due to the help and support I received from them and the rest of the staff. Thank you so much for helping me find the opportunity to have a second chance at life.

Hello slidebw45,

Thank you for your story.

It is amazing that in a few sentences you can give a sense of the bigness of the change from despair to hope and your decision to act from that place and reach out for support. That is a courageous journey. It is great that you have learned so much about yourself and now know how to use the various tools you were given to deal with what life presents to you.

Thank you for your recognition of the work of Lives Lived Well's Logan House and your appreciation of the staff you connected with you in specific ways. I will pass on to them your comments.

I wish you all the best in your life ahead and please contact us if we can be of further support.

Warm regards,
