Maxine's Story

Maxine started taking drugs when she was 24 and on the “party scene”. She continued to take drugs for 26 years. She tried to detox on her own at home but every time it came to going to an event, she always needed that one last “hit”.

Maxine received some tragic news during that time that her father was terminally ill. She felt like she couldn’t cope anymore and wanted to die, and that was the turning point for Maxine. She said to her partner “you’ve got to lock me up or I’m dying”. That was when her sister told her partner to call someone and get help.

Watch Maxine’s brave and honest video of her journey to recovery, we are so proud of her:

In her own words...

At rock bottom
“I was admitted to Linwood broken, absolutely broken, wanting to die”.

Giving it a go
“I didn’t know what to do, so I just did what was suggested, and that was ‘let them help you’, ‘let them guide you’”.

Specialised and caring staff
“The staff are amazing, they know how to help you. The advice they give comes from their heart, they genuinely care”.

You're never alone
“There is always someone to talk to. You’re never alone”.

Linwood is there to help 24/7
“Thanks to Linwood and the 12-step process, I was given the tools to get through this.”

Getting a life back
“I didn’t have a life before, was just an existence. I was an embarrassment to the family. But I’m not that today. I’m very proud of who I am today, and I work on a daily basis to keep my sobriety. It worked. It DOES work, if you work it.”
