By the age of 13 I had my first drink. The ones I loved around me seemed insignificant anymore, I needed to get alcohol and that was all that mattered.  Without Goldbridge and without the support staff that helped me out and after the program as well – through the half way systems well – now I have the opportunity to do what I really want to do with my life.  Goldbridge has definitely saved my life.   It’s been the only place that I have come through recovery that has really given me the skills I need to cope with life.  My family is very supportive, I’ve great friends and great support from Goldbridge – it is all such a positive experience.
