I decided to go to The Salvation Army Bridge for help with my addictions. I was so scared, and the first two weeks were the hardest—others on the programme walked out. But I knew that if I wanted to get better, I was going to have to do whatever was asked of me.
The programme was interesting, and it was great to understand different aspects of myself. I would recommend it to anybody.
“Many things have got me where I am today—counselling, the Bridge programme, AA, Recovery Church, and other addictions programmes. I hope my story helps other people who are struggling to realise they can get help.
At the Bridge I went to Recovery Church. I am stronger than I have ever been. I am calm and have found peace. I feel blessed, and my life’s journey with God continues.
