My name is Rustam, I am 28. I was born in a well-disposed family, happy for life until the age of 16, when I started to use drugs. My life rolled into the abyss, my family turned away from me. Ten years of addiction, I lived in darkness. That was until fate brought me to the centre of social adaptation "Independence". Here, my life changed, and I realized that not only other people can live, but I do too. Every day I'm getting something new in my life. I am happy and grateful to those people who help me.
My name is Oleg, I'm 42 years old. To the centre I came after a recommendation from acquaintances and do not regret about it. We have a friendly team, and we live a healthy lifestyle. What can I say, the changes are obvious - I do not smoke, even though I had smoked for 29 years. Addiction of alcohol has disappeared, even though I had been drinking all my life, during the breaks out of prison sentences, where I spent a total of 20 years. So I can say that there are not unchangeable people, everything is in your hands!
My name is Olga, I'm 36 years old. 17 years of those I was using drugs, with all the consequences – lying to relatives, theft, prison. Prison is not the most terrible place, because there is cemetery, where you will not be able to change anything anymore. This year I once again released from prison custody. Lived at home for some time and realized that thoughts about drugs begin to return. I looked around and decided that nothing has changed, I need to change myself. One acquaintance told me about the social adaptation centre, where he had completed the program, and it really changed his life. Currently, I am in the centre, and I have hope for the future. This is my first step towards a new life!
Hello! We are Maxim and Svetlana. A few years ago we were dying from drugs. We were at the bottom, completely destroyed, and we were not needed for society or relatives. With our miserable existence we caused only pain, anxiety and frustration to surrounding people. Doctors’ prognoses were as verdict - hospital, prison, death. And it seemed that there is not a way out.
But thanks to social adaptation centre "Independence Balt." we got freedom, a happy family, good friends, and most importantly - we live a wholesome life!
