My name is Yuriy, I am 22s. From the age of 8 I started to smoke and drink alcohol. By the time I started to drink constantly. Parties usually ended with disputes and fights. At 17 I tried drugs - heroin and amphetamines. I did not notice how 3 years passed. During this time, I lost everything I had. Health, work and friends. I no longer had a place to live. I lived in the garage; I took a lot of loans and those whom I owed were looking for me. Relatives did not want to contact with me. Then I realized that my life is something to be changed. I found out about social adaptation centre "Independence" from a friend, who himself went there and decided to go. Now I am in the centre for 5 months and I have realized that I want to live life clear. I realized that the program really works here. There are many people who have completed this program and freed from addiction. I know that I can do it too!
