Having completed the Triple Care Farm program, Jessica wanted to say thank you by writing a letter. Your support has given Jessica hope to believe in a brighter future.

TCF was an opportunity presented to me that I really didn’t think 
was possible.
I had read about this facility on the website; however
I didn’t really know what I would encounter on entering the program. By the second week of my stay I was settling in and starting to think about how this would benefit my life after leaving the program.

By the third week I had rediscovered my own self-belief which had been missing for years. I began to realise that TCF is not just a Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation facility, but more importantly a caring and safe place for young adults to live, learn and improve on behavioral problems.

I trust myself now that I am capable of starting something and finishing it, and that feeling is a greater high than that of any drug. The people at TCF are fantastic and it was important knowing that
my treatment was an individually tailored plan, not just a generic “one size fits all” model.

Now I truly believe I’m a smarter person than I’ve given myself credit for in the past. I feel stronger within myself than I have previously felt. This has given me hope to believe in a brighter future. I really feel that I’m capable of achieving whatever I set my mind to.

It is only since spending time at TCF that the sobering reality of the depth of loneliness and despair of my former existence become clear. This has made me determined to continue on this path of expanding my world on the outside.

Thank you TCF for caring about me and my recovery. I will forever be grateful for your support and love.

Jessica
