Before I engaged with THH I had no pride at having been in the RAF. This was because I had become a shadow of my former self. I was homeless, committing crimes and heavily over medicated on top of all my drug and alcohol use. I had no hope for the future.
I am now over a year clean and sober. I take no other medications either. Meds that psychiatrists told me I would be on for the rest of my life.
I have taken 6 new courses and I am now working in schools talking about my experiences both in the military and with substance abuse.
I have great relationships with my daughters now and I am excited about my future. I still live in supported housing but my next step will be to venture into independent living within the next year or so.
I’m full of gratitude for everyone at THH and always will be.
