"Drinking & using habits"

About: Shanty Creek Residential Rehabilitation Facility

(as a service user),

Drinking and using habits, Shanty Creek has allowed me to get away from it all for a bit. It's been helpful, but you have to do it for yourself. At Shanty Creek it's a controlled environment whereas it's more chaotic outside. I've learnt when I'm outside the people I'm attracted to add to my problems and issues and have alcohol and other drugs around. I've learnt that different people and environments will make it easier or harder for me. I need to find different social groups.

Hello zuludh34

Thank you for your observations and comments about your stay at Shanty Creek. It is great that you are able to reflect on your life and see things in a different way.

As you have discovered the environment and the people we are attracted to can make a big impact on our decisions and can make it easier or harder for us. That is a really important insight to have.

I wish you all the best in finding social groups that help you live the life you want for yourself.

Warm regards
