André's Journey to a Recovery Lifestyle

The first punch hit me in the temple and jolted me into survival mode. I kept getting up and yelling at my attackers but they wouldn't stop. They kept up their vicious attack; punching, kicking and bouncing my head off the pavement. 

It all happened so quick I didn't see it coming. Eventually the wounds from being attacked healed, but the emotional scars lingered. 


In response I turned to drugs and gangs to cope. Anxiety and depression hit me like a tonne of bricks and I spiraled out of control. I couldn't work my painting and cleaning business anymore, and made a lot of decisions that damaged relationships in my life. 


Eventually I hit my rock bottom and made the choice to turn my life around. Now my biggest passion is helping others going through addiction build their own recovery lifestyle. No matter how addiction has impacted you, know there is always hope. 


During my recovery, I experienced many frustrating moments trying to navigate the system, and my journey to recovery. I want to make the process of building a recovery lifestyle more accessible to provide hope for those who need it.
