Colin's Story - a life turned around

For arguments sake my name is Col, but this is really irrelevant because it’s my journey from who I was to where I am now that truly matters. For nigh on 30 years I was a heroin addict and the life I lead was one of heartache, pain and suffering. Not just for me but for those around me as well. I spent countless years being homeless and living on the streets moving from one city or town to the next because I’d exhausted any hopes of settling down due to the crimes I’d committed in an attempt to maintain my habit.

 

Eventually I ended up in Oxford and it was whilst on the streets here that I decided that enough was enough. I enrolled at the Rushin College to study. I chose a writing course as it’s the one thing I enjoy doing. I did this whilst still being homeless which in itself is an amazing feat, and in turn this helped me to obtain a tenancy in a shared house. I was nearing the end of my first year when my key worker suggested a relocation programme might possibly be the way forward for me.

 

The fact that this relocation programme was to County Durham didn’t particularly bother me because I’d burned all my bridges with family and friends a long time ago, so I decided to go for it. I moved up here in May 2017 and to be quite honest it’s one of the best things that I’ve done in my life so far. I’m now completely free of drugs and substitutes, and am now living in a two bedroom home.

 

Things have progressed rather rapidly as I’ve also finished a course in conjunction with the Police, yes that’s right, I’m now working with the Police instead of being one of their ‘clients’. It’s a Peer Mentoring scheme which will allow me to work with others who are in similar situations such as I was. It’s really fantastic because it makes me feel as though I haven’t spent my life doing what I did totally in vain. I’m also going to do a course at my local drug and alcohol unit so I can put my particular talents to use there as well.

 

All in all my life now has both a meaning and a purpose and in all honesty I doubt I’d be here now if it wasn’t for the move I’ve made coming up here. One thing I will say is this; if you’re thinking about doing it yourself, go for it. If your life is a total mess then you’ve got nothing whatsoever to lose, and who knows you may just save your life.
