What Recovery Means To Me - Chris Ling

Everyone has a different approach to life, and the same can be said about people’s approaches to recovery. The recovery journey of Wired In volunteer Chris Ling is an approach that I will never forget.

Chris has literally taken life by the horns since entering treatment for alcohol addiction ten months ago. I meet Chris on a weekly basis, and rarely a week goes by where he hasn’t completed a course or applied for voluntary work that will help him achieve his dream of working in the substance misuse field. His caring nature and passion for helping others is lovely to see, and I am sure he will be an asset to this field.

The positive outlook that Chris has towards life and his future is truly inspiring – although I have no idea where he gets his energy from! Chris jumped at the chance to share his views on recovery, and we decided to have a go at filming our discussion. Please take a look at Chris’s views on ‘What Recovery Means To Me’.
