Cathy's Story

“After struggling with addiction and alcoholism, alongside working in high-pressured jobs for many years, I was fortunate enough to be introduced to DHI. Over the last two years they have stood by me and always been there to support me. When I hit rock bottom, I went to a treatment centre to detox, but they maintained contact with me throughout this time and were always supportive, caring and had the amazing ability to make me laugh even during my darkest moments.

“After I left the treatment centre, we were in lockdown but I was still able to sign up to all of their recovery programmes which involved speaking to a keyworker on the phone at least once a week. With the amazing support and guidance from DHI, alongside working a 12-step programme, I have managed to maintain my recovery and lead a much healthier and happier lifestyle.

“I shall be forever grateful to the team at DHI as they were such an important part of maintaining my recovery and they will always have a special place in my heart. The team really are some of the most wonderful people I have been fortunate enough to come into contact with.”
