Andrew Sullivan A Year without Substance

Andrew Sullivan, a recovering addict and ex-client of Twin Rivers Rehab

Andrew Sullivan Introduction

Andrew came to Twin Rivers Rehab in a poor physical and psychological condition. What was apparent from the start of Andrew’s residential treatment was his determination and ‘drive’ to improve his lifestyle.

Treatment is very challenging in that clients are ‘invited’ to share about aspects of themselves that , quite understandably they would normally avoid!

Andrew was very candid about his addiction and addiction related behaviours which undoubtedly contributed towards Andrew’s present successes in his life. Becoming ‘clean & sober’ is in itself a challenge that requires daily vigilance and so to be able to write a book during the early stages of recovery is very inspiring.

Andrew recently shared story with the Southern Cape News – An interview with a recovering addict >>
