A short stint in rehab
David and I recently spent a short stint in rehab – at Willowdene Farm in Shropshire.
We spent a morning with six residents helping them with interview techniques and holding mock interviews. Willowdene is a fascinating place where former heroin users spend nine months gaining up to 20 qualifications as well as undergoing extensive therapy. Over 90% of them go on to full-time employment and a drug free life after their time in the centre. We learnt a lot about the barriers that substance users have to face before starting afresh and hopefully passed on a few tips whilst we were there!
