Daniel has just secured full time employment. He was referred to Cyrenians Recovery Service’s Empowering Recovery Programme due to his heavy drinking and cannabis use. He lost his last job because he was unable to process his anger well.
He joined the programme because he wanted to manage his anger issues, rebuild family relationships, stop all use of cannabis and be a “normal drinker.”
Daniel finished the group programme at the beginning of the summer. He feels that he has the tools to manage substance misuse and his anger. Now he is aware the way in which his anger can spiral out of control and can step back to control this. Daniels’ maintained abstinence from illegal drugs and is controlling the amount he drinks.
He comes along to our aftercare programme, even though he’s now in full time programme. We don’t leave people to manage their self-care alone and we’re here for Daniel in the long run.
