Jordan was court ordered to attend Triple Care Farm. He was sceptical from day one. He thought his time there would be a box ticking exercise that would help his case, in a legal sense.
He didn’t expect that what he would learn at Triple Care Farm would stay with him for the rest of his life, and actually allow him to move beyond his addiction and to reintegrate into the community with a newfound lease on life.
Over time and with a clear mind, Jordan was able to reflect on how absent he’d been from his daughter’s life. He was able to re-evaluate the kind of father he wanted to be.
Jordan learned strategies that would keep him from relapsing. Things like identifying his triggers, examining his beliefs about himself, thinking through the consequences of his actions, understanding his irrational thinking patterns, choosing to change his problematic behaviour and replace it instead with new beliefs and feelings.
As Jordan weighed out the advantages and disadvantages of doing drugs, it didn’t take long for him to realise what was actually at stake. He knew that if he continued on the path he was on, there was only going to be two likely outcomes, prison or an early death. Now equipped with this insight, Jordan has made a new life for himself.
He reflects here (in this video) on his time at the Farm and the opportunities it has opened up for him. It’s obvious how smart, charismatic and motivated Jordan is. He has everything going for him. We know he will accomplish anything he puts his mind to. Thanks for being an inspiration to others, Jordan.
