Addiction, Health, Behaviour Change | CGL

Calum's story*

I was in a really bad way when I approached CGL. I was at the end of my tether, the bottom of the barrel and didn’t know if anyone could help me. I had tried other services before but they hadn’t helped.

My keyworker visited me at home for our first appointment. I saw my keyworker several times and then started going into the groups after I had completed my home detox.

The turning point for me was when I realised that I didn’t have to have alcohol to live life, I now have an amazing fulfilled life. I am doing the peer mentor training and am thoroughly enjoying it. I am feeling very positive about my future.
