“The last few weeks for me personally have been a struggle, life was really giving it to me. Probably the roughest time I've had sober. If it wasn’tfor ARC I hate to think were I might have ended up. It got me through the doors of a gym after 37 years and has definitely helped with my confidence. I've also improved my diet and fitness over the last few weeks.”

“Overall it’s been really positive. I’ve liked being with people in the same boat.”

“I am feeling life is worth while and I am feeling more in recovery than I have ever felt.”

“Throughout the programme I felt more in control of my addiction and drug use. By joining the programme and becoming more active I felt more positive.”

“The support I got from the group definitely got me through some of the toughest days I've experienced since being sober.”

“I had been stuck for a few months between wanting change and terrified to do it. The programme helped me back into training and being social with people without drugs or alcohol.”

“Life changing. The group really took me in under their wing and I feel like we’re great friends. We can talk about cravings or struggles and not feel judged. Gaz was always very supportive. It’s just been amazing.”

“Garys expertise in fitness, and being able to tie this in with recovery was really helpful. The WatsApp group was very helpful. Everyone stayed in touch. Garys motivational messages and ones from other group members were much appreciated at times when struggling.”

“Amazing positive and encouraging and over all my mental health and my outlook on life has totally changed.”

“Before I started the programme I had cravings every couple each day. It has lessened so much since I started that I can't remember the last time I craved.”
