"My door to recovery"

About: Lives Lived Well - Gold Coast

(as the patient),

Being in active drug addiction was a living nightmare. I was my own worst enemy and spiraling out of control. I had been homeless for 6 months when I found out I was pregnant. I knew I wanted to change even if I didn't know how. Right from the moment I met Claire I felt I could put my trust in her. She was confident that she could help me make the changes I wanted in my life and wasted no time in getting the process started. Claire's ongoing faith and support enabled me to start believing in myself and slowly I started making positive changes. That was almost six months ago now, and I never imagined I would have come this far; it's almost like a dream. I've been sober from drugs for over 15 weeks now and have relocated interstate where I've started building a life for myself. I have a supportive, loving partner and beautiful home ready for my daughter's arrival in the new year. It is through Claire's help & support that I've been able to change my life around, she believed in me and helped me realize what I was worth and capable of. Claire has been with me every step of the way cheering me on and I am forever grateful to her. Truly an amazing woman.
