Oct. 3, 2018 – Addiction doesn’t care about class, race, status or age. As some completed their programme and others arrived, new associations and possibilities emerged. Those who left for secondary or tertiary care — designed to offer gradual reintegration into society or who went home — left gaps that were soon filled with new people and new stories. In this crucible, we formed strong bonds. I believe that the imperative to be completely honest, with the support provided, is the first thing that sets you free and on the path to recovery. Holding each other accountable was key. We were encouraged to challenge ourselves and each other to find our true voices. What do I care about? Who am I? How am I behaving right now? These life-defining questions were asked relentlessly.
