"I was at a point in my life where I had nowhere else to turn. Things had gotten so bad for me and I felt like I was alone. My sister reached out to me with a number to call. Out of desperation and curiosity, I contacted South Shore Health Centre. I spoke with a peer facilitator who knew exactly what I was going through. During the first phone call, my facilitator offered me something I hadn't felt in quite some time... Hope. They worked with me every step of the way, offering support to me and my family. He helped secure a spot in detox for me that will lead to a residential treatment program"
