I have accessed many services throughout my years of addiction and often failed to relate to most keyworkers, often left disillusioned by the lack of continuous support available in the area.
I was lucky enough to be put into a rehab, however once I came out I was put back in the same area and environment lacking any aftercare as such which often led to many relapses.
I found support from other recovering addicts was more conducive to my recovery than other means and sought these out of my local area, eventually getting and staying clean through this interaction. After which I have been actively involved in peer mentoring and found it very rewarding to myself and beneficial and effective for current service users.
There should be more provision for this locally.
