John had battled with 20 years of drug addiction, which had caused him to be evicted from multiple services, and involved with trouble against the police on numerous occasions. John attempted recovery once, but felt that it was not the right option for him at the time. John has now resided with us for 11 months, and is now determined to clear his lasting drug addiction, evident through his attendance at pre-habilitation groups weekly, and has just secured himself a place in detox and rehabilitation groups, which he is now attending. John said he could not have done this without the support of the staff at NWPC and is very grateful for their hard work. We wish John the best of luck for the future.
