I have found the Drug Counselling centre program most effective, in that it has allowed me to regain stability and clarity in life. I found my social worker Colleen’s input particularly helpful because she made me realize that I had a great deal to offer in the group sessions.

I’ve certainly become aware that drug taking solves nothing. I know now that accepting my own thoughts and feelings is an essential component of living with happiness and good judgment.

Some of the groups, lectures and consultations have been tough for me to handle. Initially I felt blocked. Now, however, I recognize the compassion that has been shown to me, especially by Colleen and the psychiatrist Dr Tshiki.

I know that people want to see me well again. Now that’s starting to emerge, I feel confident that my drug problem can be handled, and I could in fact become a leader in my field.
