I was hooked on heroin for ten years. I often wanted to stop; it’s no life to live. I went to many rehabs, only to relapse when I completed the program. I joined Simcha Recovery as it is after hours, affordable and conveniently situated. I manage my studies and my recovery now. This time I’m doing it for me.



I am on a natural high and living again. I will never look back.

I plan, I executive and I keep boundaries in place. I don't listen to voices in my head.

I am the voice. I have learned so much about myself in the past 5 years.

A testimony from a Simcha veteran


The Clients speak: The problem makes you think more of yourself than you ought to...

the groups counsel and therapy together with the group members that are also trying their best to make it...

tends to humble you by having respect and realizing how fragile every person is in the face of the problem of addiction. 

It keeps you grounded....



Divorce as a consequence of addiction comes as a big shock and loss.

That is what addiction does; it robs you and steals from you...and kicks you in the stomach and it laughs at you with so much satisfaction...

but if you stand up then you'll realise that this problem of addiction that made you lose something special and tried to destroy everything...

is actually an insignificant little bald headed creature with ugly kick this addiction in the teeth...kick it out...

just walk away and follow your path of discovery and recovery...don't give is much like a rollercoaster, you are just at the bottom for the car to stop for some people to get off and others to climb in...

so you're heading for the top now...slowly but surely...hang in there.



My family is slowly learning to trust me again. They are starting to understand that I am not the Problem, but that Alcohol is the problem that very nearly ruined my life. I am able to work again and I am starting to believe in myself again. I have broken my relationship with Booze and for the first time in years, I feel free.
