From Addiction to Employment: A Journey of Recovery and Redemption ( Podcast)
In this episode of “Catch Me When I Fall”, we hear from Kris, an ex-service user who shares his story of addiction, recovery, and redemption. Kris speaks candidly about how he misused his partner’s prescribed medication to aid his addiction and how he eventually found the help he needed to turn his life around.
We also hear from a worker at Inspire, a local organization that provides support and guidance to people dealing with addiction and mental health issues. They share how they helped Kris find employment through their IPS scheme and how this employment was a key factor in his continued recovery.
