"Am so so grateful to the Provy. Simply would not be alive today without them. I was skin and bones, a ghost who had given up on life. I found a programme that I could work that has not just kept me sober, but has given me back a way of life that I never had had before... Provy staff and peers, supported me, signposted me, councelled me, hugged me, encouraged me, and never gave up on me. .Today, is a miracle for me …”
"Today my husband Paul is 1 year clean and sober thanks to The Providence Projects, he has found himself again and is living the life he deserves. " A life beyond his wildest dreams "… He initially signed up for 1 month but soon realised he needed a further 2 months. Paul has been dedicated and followed the advice given to him. He would not be here today if he hadn't been to The Providence Projects. I cannot thank or praise the program and staff enough…”
