Amber’s story

Amber's story

Significant moment in my recovery would be moving to the transitional house. I was quite scared to move out of the Adeara Recovery Centre because I didn’t truly believe or trust in myself if I could live a ‘normal life.’ I decided to stay there for as long as I could because of this fear. When the time came for me to move, I knew that it was the right time. It just felt right. Moving gave me the confidence in myself to lie on my own, to continue being a great mom and to have healthy relationships by working on boundaries. It’s not scary at all being on my own and I love it. If you were to ask my 3 years ago if I’d be doing this, I would never have dreamed of it. I thank the Adeara Recovery Centre for it all.
