I was unsure how to use them and fit them into my life. By interacting with Peer Support and the Clinical team I have routine and confidence to be able to be useful to myself and family. With ongoing support I am able to live a life free from substance abuse. I’m able to maintain consistency as a parent and to adjust to everyday requirements of living life on life’s terms.
