"my recovery"

About: Halton Integrated Recovery Service

(as a service user),

Been with CGL for many years since a teenager, in and out of prison with addiction.

Last year I meet my new keyworker, after being released from prison. I was still using heroin and facing the fact I might loose my unborn child after loosing my first.

My keyworker believed in me and told me how she was going to support me and helped me with a path to recovery. She told me it wasn't going to be easy and at times it hasn't, but 13 months later I have given birth to a healthy boy, been in rehab and got clean. I have worked with all agencies and still doing this. Today I am clean off everything nearly 11 months. I want to thank her for believing in me and a massive thank you for all your love and support on getting me where I am today. You have been the best keyworker I have ever had. I couldn't of got through it without you pushing and pushing me so thank you so much.  I promise to keep ongoing and will never give up. I am now looking forward to becoming a service rep for CGL and give what you gave me to someone else.

Thank you for sharing your story, it sounds like you have been through a lot.

Congratulations on the birth of your baby!

I will share your story with the team and I'm sure your keyworker will recognise your story. It seems like she has really supported you to make positive changes and we are really proud of our team and the work that they do.

11 months clean is an amazing achievement and I am so pleased that you have a focus to help others as you have a truly inspiring story. Make sure to look after yourself and your little boy and I look forward to welcoming you as a member of the team in the near future.
