"My daughter's drug addiction and anxiety"

About: Lives Lived Well - Gold Coast

(as a parent/guardian),

My daughter has struggled for many years with anxiety and drug addiction, both illegal and prescription. I could see we were losing our beautiful, intelligent girl and I found myself actually preparing myself for the worst. I couldn't cope with this thought anymore and decided there had to be somewhere that could help her. I contacted Claire from Lives Lived Well and I am so grateful for everything she has done for my daughter and our family. Claire gave me the strength and strategies to deal with my daughter. She was always there ready to jump in and take things to the next step. Without Claire supporting my daughter into rehab at Lives Lived Well I can't even imagine, nor do I want to imagine how her life might be now. She learned strategies and gained a new confidence in herself to believe she could change and actually have a future. I can't thank everyone who was involved enough!
