Am so so grateful to the Provy. Simply would not be alive today without them

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. I feel now that I was meant to walk through those doors, I didn't understand at the time how ill I was. Provy staff and peers, supported me, signposted me, councelled me, hugged me, encouraged me, and never gave up on me. Today, I am looking after my son who is off school sick. It's taken 18 months to see him. And without the providence project, I am absolutely sure it wouldn't have happened. Today, is a miracle for me and my son. Thank you, I am so so grateful to you all xxx

I was a client at Providence when i was 16, back in 2008

I was a client at Providence when i was 16, back in 2008. With hindsight, my time at the Provy was the first experience i ever had of caring treatment from adults, and the first time i learned that they could be safe. I had cycled between eating disorders, self harm and drug addiction from a very young age and had no idea how to live. I had dropped out of school with no qualifications, never worked a job in my life, and even after getting clean i thought that these things could never possibly change because there was something inherently wrong with me, that meant i would never be a capable, competent adult who could achieve things or change her life. I thought i would be dead before 30.
Years later, i'm now 24. I had a brief relapse after leaving Provy but got clean again - i truly believe this would never had happened had i not had such extensive therapy and love from the Provy team. The few months i spent in treatment were the only times i had experienced in which i felt some semblance of happiness and real connection with others. Those memories tarnished my relapse and i couldn't use in denial anymore, remembering what i had learned at the Provy, every time i picked up. I'm 7 years clean now. I just completed a Bachelors degree and achieved a First class Honours. I'm awaiting the start of my Masters degree in October. I have loving friendships in my life, as well as having ongoing therapy and a self-built life that allows me to travel and really take care of myself.
I will never forget the love i experienced at Provy. Looking back, i can see that the team were especially sensitive to the fact that as a 16 year old, they had a very young girl in their care. They looked out for me and they wanted more for me. The staff work tirelessly in extremely challenging circumstances and have an understanding of addiction that many of the governmental drug services tragically lack. I honestly and wholeheartedly cannot recommend The Providence Projects enough and would implore anyone who is fighting their own battle with addiction to give themselves a chance at a better life.
Treatment here saved my life, and i know for a fact that it has done the same for so many others <3

"An unassuming house in the heart of Boscombe where miracles happen. From my initial talk with Paul, the admission process with Jon and my induction with Darryl, I was treated with compassion, empathy and understanding. All the staff had been in the same position as me!...If you are looking for a wealth of experience and knowledge around addiction, a safe environment to turn your life around and a solid foundation for your ongoing recovery you will not be disappointed.”
 
"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…”
 
"A very special place, with wonderful staff. 3 years on life is amazing. Thank you so much for everything you all did for me. Alcohol dependant and a chronic gambler the Provi gave me a platform to turn life around and that it has, meaningful relationships, wonderful friends and most importantly peace of mind. You told me good things would happen and they have - and continue to do so. Highly recommended..."
