Arthur was an alcohol dependent client who was
drinking 1 litre of Vodka per day for 20 years. He came
into the service in January 2018, he was anxious,
depressed, had no money due to losing his job, but did
not know how to claim benefits.
He was in mortgage arrears of £38,000 and facing
being made homeless. He was referred by me to Family
Mosaic for housing related support, who then went
about getting the client on benefits and speaking with
the mortgage company.
He has now successfully completed a medical detox
at Passmores, and then went straight into Community
Rehab SHARPS in Wickford, he graduated, now attends
2 NA meetings every week, he is slowly paying off
his mortgage arrears after successfully being put
on Employment and support allowance, and is now
looking at doing a training for a new career.
He has obtained sobriety and is feeling very positive
about the future. He has now been placed in recovery
support with Open Road and is engaging in ‘Futures
in Mind’ on the Aspire programme and is currently
engaging with ‘Breaking the Cycle’ with Synergy
