Change is Possible
‘A Patient’s Journey’
Probably the most important part of my recovery was to understand that it would take hard work and commitment from me to gain control of my life. I am grateful for The Hobart Clinic’s support on this journey. Like most people I wanted a quick fix to my feelings of emptiness, loss of touch with reality and depression. Alcohol and drugs seemed like the answer at that time.
The fact that we were over on the eastern shore away from town meant I had a complete break from ‘using’ and the temptations to fall back into old ways of coping.
I attend the therapy program at Murray Street Clinic each week which has helped me manage conflict and gain greater self-confidence.
