My name is Dylan and this is my story is about my addiction and recovery. I am addicted to alcohol and cocaine. I’ve been struggling with it since I was 15 and every day I would go to school high and drunk. I was a dealer so drugs were easy for me to get and when I was broke, I would spend my wife’s money. I lost my job and it got a whole lot worse. I have ADD and substances didn’t help with that one bit. After one night being all messed up on cocaine and alcohol I assaulted my wife: I don’t hit woman at all and I would never do that, that’s how bad it is. I was charged and released on Christmas Day.  January 4th 2016 I am now in Addiction Services and have been clean now and I plan to stay that way for the rest of my life. Still with my wife today and trust me say no to drugs. Thank you Thames Valley Addiction Services for taking the time to help me with my problem.
