We’re going to add stories, poems, songs, comments etc made by young people & others about alcohol and / or drugs.

Message received from a young woman who is now 18 & enjoying her life substance free;¬† Your organisation helped me for four years, and the work my RUOK worker did was honestly life saving. I do not believe I would be here if it wasn’t for my worker,. However, I cannot sing her praises highly enough for being far more than a substance misuse worker, helping me as much as she could with housing, employment, training, money and above all, my general emotional state. I cannot thank her enough for the life skills she taught me and for just being the only person willing to listen with an open mind for a large chunk of my teenage life when I was going through a really hard time. To her, and to your whole team I send my eternal thanks. You’re literally angels!
