Having spent decades struggling with drugs, crime and homelessness, in 2012 Jeremy entered DHI’s community detox facility, allowing for regular contact with his children whilst undergoing a supervised detox. As Jeremy gained independence, he moved into our ‘dry house’, trained as a peer mentor and returned to college.
Two years later, Jeremy gained an apprenticeship with Reach, our housing support service. He now has a permanent position, lives in his own home and has full custody of his children. In his spare time Jeremy works tirelessly to support local good causes, even throwing himself out of planes!
