I’ve been a Heroin addict for 10 years. I have been taking drugs since the age of 15 and I’m 34 now. I took any drugs I could lay my hands on. I didn’t have any life. My whole life was about getting and using drugs and finding ways and means to get more.
I had no real friends, only other addicts who were only interested in what they could get from me. I couldn’t trust anyone and no-one could trust me. I constantly lied and stole from anyone I could whether it was strangers, friends, family or anyone. In the end my friends and family turned their back on me and I had nowhere else to turn.
I entered Jericho House two weeks ago and I’ve been clean ever since. My withdrawals were easy because all the staff and residents helped me through it. I could never have done it on the streets. Already I’m feeling the benefits. I know I can get better and that gives me hope. Thank God I found Jericho House.
