Hi my name is Adam, I'm 35 years old I have been fighting addiction since I was 18 years old to drugs. I have tried to get help from the free services in Australia only to be turned away on the basis I don't use everyday so I was considered not bad enough in other words. For 18 years I have been using and drinking so when considered not be a drug addict in desperate need of rehab it definitely makes me wonder who is making these decisions. My only option to remove this desease from my body is to attend a private rehab. In Australia there are a number of private centres available apart from be on a waiting list for sometimes for years some can Cost upwards of 5-10 000 dollars a week which puts going to one of these places way out of the ball park for me. I'm a single dad of to beautiful boys 10 & 13 I have been for 8 years. I have done my best but could of done better. I can see that now and want to make the future as best as I can for them they deserve and clean father and defenity know what it's like not have one. I'm trying to raise money to attended a rehab centre in Thailand Called DARA it's a place where lives are changed the cost for this 4 week program is approxamently $6500 including airfares the program is truly inspiring I do have some money saved unbelievable so im trying to raise anything that would help. I still live a normal life provide for my children pay the the bills ect.. But I have these daemons that won't go away and is slowly getting worse. I thought I would try this so any help would be much appreciated thank you.
