“I can’t thank the staff at Hafan Wen enough for helping me get my life back. I started using drugs at the age of 13 and I had never known a ‘normal’ life. I went to Hafan Wen last April, I even celebrated my 50th Birthday there. After leaving Hafan Wen I started my new life with my beautiful daughter and grandson. It’s been a year since my detox and I’ve never felt better, I’ve had the best year of my life. I’m so happy for the first time since coming off subutex and diazepam.
For the past six months I’ve been volunteering twice a week at a Soup Kitchen in Blackpool called Amazing Grace. I love giving something back and feel happy to be in a position where I can help others. My daughter Leanne asked me to thank you all too as she has a mum now.”
