I first met Ian Young nearly nine years ago when I came to a treatment centre, which he ran. Ian did my assessment over the phone and suggested that I should come to him for treatment. Having successfully graduated, he then helped me a great deal until one day he suggested one day that I become more involved in service work – “helping others”, being charitable with my time. I knew nothing about being of service and his words were, “You will meet a lot more like minded people and your recovery will take off”. And that has been my experience…it’s like I have a mission in life now. I have done a lot of different service commitments in the UK and it has helped my recovery. I will always be grateful to Ian Young for helping me on my journey.
