“Sitting in the house no hope no future … thinking every night you go to bed maybe I’ll get lucky and I won’t wake up, now it’s completely changed.  My connection with Partners in Recovery has been the turning point in my life … my family’s got pride in me now that I’m not a burden to them anymore”.
