"I have my life back"

About: Change Grow Live Cambridgeshire

(as a service user),

I was addicted to heroin and crack . I reached an all time low and had no where to turn. I called cgl in Cambridge and they have been amazing I received all the help I needed and More. I am now off drugs in temporary housing and have my life back. 

   It has all been thanks to cgl I made the changes and am now on medication and my life is back on track. I initially spoke to Laura she was so helpful and got me seen quickly now Tony is my support worker he's a great guy and is always there should I need help or just need to talk with him . I am so thankful to these guys they do an amazing job and have basically saved my life I cannot thank them enough . If anyone reads this and is in the same situation I was then do reach out the help us there for you call cgl and get help now.

Hi Steyx33

Thank you for taking the time to write such kind words. I am so please you are doing well and as you say have your life back on track. Both Laura and Tony are fantastic at what they do. Ill pass on your comments to them. Im sure you have plans for the future now you are stabilising and that can be quite daunting - planning ahead - but also very exciting. Take all of the support on offer and I know Tony will point you in the direction of lots of support groups etc.

Well done and keep going.



Service Manager
