My name is Aidan and I’m from Ettalong. I am 30 years old and I have been using drugs and alcohol since the age of 16. For the past 14 years I have been a functioning alcoholic without any
major time off the drink until I came into The Glen centre in May 2020. This is my first time in rehab and I am now 3 and a half months clean and sober.
Before coming to The Glen I consumed alcohol daily to try and escape the reality of what happened throughout my life and the daily struggles I faced. When first got to The Glen I
was feeling overwhelmed with anxiety, sleep deprivation and inside I felt spiritually and mentally
dead. I lost passion for life and felt like my world was closing in on me and can honestly say I felt like death wasn’t too far away.
Today I have good people in my life that tell me what I need to hear rather than what I want to hear. I have a daily program what I practise that keeps me connected to my inner spirit and to the people around me. Before coming to The Glen I felt dead inside, today I feel really positive and when I wake from my sleep I want to live and enjoy my life.
