Video: Vinny - Pierpoint, 12 Step Programme, Drug Addiction

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

Vinnie talks about his desire to stop using and his time at Pierpoint in their 12 step programme. He describes his mind as a washing machine, constantly churning over thoughts, the skills he has learnt in the programme help him rationalise and deal with those thoughts and the subsequent emotions.

Through growth and abstinence, Vinnie has faced his fears and has found his way back into society and his family. He now describes himself as a positive, confident individual, with a sense of well being.
