BREAKING ADDICTIONS AND SUPPORTING RECOVERY IN COMMUNITY
Chooselife believe that Recovery from addiction is a long term process and therefore we have tailored our support packages to not only meet the current need which is normally quite chaotic and involves crisis management, but also prepare ourselves and the person to start making small, healthy, and positive daily choices which will bring about long term recovery. We all need relationships in life. To most people they get those needs met through their family and friends. When you are involved in an addiction most family relationships would be broken through lies, deceit and manipulation. They could be unhealthy through co-dependency. Most street relationships revolve around drugs and drink. Chooselife is a community of people who are all at different stages of recovery. Because of this we encourage the development of trust in relationships with staff, volunteers, and other centre user’s, this helps to bring down barriers and allows encouragement and positive praise to accepted. Through increased self-esteem and confidence this often brings about steady but permanent change.
