I’m unable to work for the next 9 months, attending and then volunteering at Brand Recovery has given me something to do to stop me drinking. Had it not been for this I would have just sat at home and drunk alcohol again and been back at square one with family problems again
The first thing I did when getting out of prison was to contact Brand Recovery as I wanted to get back on the course. I know this course can keep me out of trouble and get my life back on track.
I used to be in the Navy and suffer from post traumatic stress disorder. Coming here and doing something positive, I can actually feel my cares and worries washing away for the first time in a long time. Since attending I’ve now got a new direction and plan to study textiles at university.
I used to get frustrated and use legal highs which led me to get into trouble with the police. Since coming to Brand Recovery I’ve not been in contact with the Police. The qualifications have supported me to get a job which I start in 3 weeks
