People used to tell Scott* the life he was living would either leave him dead or in prison. After entering into recovery to help with addiction Scott is now a year clean and sober. He has his family back in his life, a home and a job. Here he talks about his journey, the work he’s put in to turning his life around and how YDT navigator Callum has supported him. Scott says, “In the space of a year my whole life has transformed…I look to the future and it blows my mind because of the opportunities I have…My past doesn’t define me, in fact it’s my greatest asset now.”
