I came into recovery in 2013, after reaching the end of my road with alcohol and drugs. Being in recovery has given me a second chance at life and a gift that I so desperately wanted. Working the 12 Step program has taught me how to live again and to give back, by helping the still-suffering addict. I have a sponsor and sponsee who hold me accountable just for today. The experience and growth I have gained in recovery give me a unique perspective to help those new to the process. Working as a House Manager allows me to pursue my passion and gives me that opportunity.

I live for purpose and meaning. I believe substance abuse and other mental illnesses are holistic and systemic challenges that affect the body, mind, family and society. Substance abuse and many years of trauma and depression played a significant part in who I was and whom I have become today. I have a rich history in substances, addictions and the mental health realm and seek to help others grasp the meaning in their own lives and find purpose and meaning that will help them understand their own lives. Therapy is where my genuine journey started, and I believe the same can happen for you.
After spending many years in the throws of addiction, denying the fact that I had a problem at all, I finally found a reprieve of my disease in a 12 step fellowship. I made the decision to ensure that no addict need ever die from this disease, as far as I could help. My passion for helping others on their recovery journey comes from my gratitude for my own. I am a good listener and have learned through my own experience with addiction and recovery to be loving and kind to all
Fred is our resident house-keeper. He fixes anything, makes beds, cleans, carries the guest's bags, does the guest's laundry and offers support - always with a ready smile and willingness to help in any way he can. He has a lovely disposition that fits in perfectly with the energy we have in the house, and we are lucky to have him as part of the team.
Finding recovery through the 12 steps has given me a life I never thought I could have or deserved. Carrying the message to others like me is one of the greatest gifts I have in my new life, free from the horrors of active addiction. Helping those most vulnerable and at the beginning of their journey to recovery is a privilege and a pleasure.
After years of substance abuse, I found recovery with the help of the 12 step program and the fellowship. Through this process my life has changed tremendously, and I am filled with joy and gratitude. I believe that selfless service, to others, is my way of showing gratitude. I hope to carry a message of recovery to others and to help them find what I have found.
Hi, My name is Marie and I am an addict. I found recovery with the 12 step program. Since 2019 I live a clean and serene life. Addiction is a disease that millions of people suffer from. I feel grateful to be able to help others recover from this disease if I can. The 12 steps and therapy helped me open my eyes again. Today I am happy to wake up every morning, to listen to others, to be clean, to help others, to live again. I gave myself time to heal from my disease in Cape Town and now I live a clean life again in Belgium, something I thought was never possible. My dream is to help others recover from addiction, I want to give back. I hope to carry the message to the still-suffering addict.
