We recently received a glowing review from Springboard participant, Christian. His words truly moved us as he spoke so graciously about his journey towards recovery and the support and guidance he received from staff.

Springboard is an eighteen-week day treatment program for people aged 18+ years who are experiencing difficulties with alcohol and other drugs, and co-occurring mental health problems.

We want to let Christian’s words speak for itself – here is his story.

In the heart of Spring Hill, amidst the bustling streets, I embarked on a transformative journey with Springboard at Communify, a beacon of hope for those seeking recovery from substance use disorders. This supportive community became my sanctuary, where compassion and resilience flourished.

Springboard embodied the spirit of second chances, while Communify represented the power of community and shared experiences, reminding me that healing is not just a destination but a continuous journey towards a richer, fuller life. Together, we navigated the challenges of addiction, turning despair into hope and isolation into connection.

I am deeply grateful for the dedicated team at Springboard at Communify, especially Sam, Jess, Rachael, and Dan, who walked alongside me during my 18-week program. Their unwavering support and guidance, from the Learning Phase groups to one-on-one counselling sessions, have been instrumental in my recovery journey.

On the 14th December 2023, I proudly received my certificate of acknowledgement, marking the completion of the program’s six-week Learning Phase group. This milestone symbolised not only my commitment to recovery but also the early steps towards the meaningful life I deserve.

I extend my heartfelt gratitude to Sam, whose compassionate counselling and assistance, including providing letters for the Honorable Judge during my court proceedings, have made a profound impact on my journey. Sam’s support and encouragement have been invaluable, instilling in me the confidence to face life’s challenges head-on.

Reflecting on my time at Springboard, I am filled with appreciation for the supportive community and the transformative experiences I’ve had. From mindfulness practices to gym sessions, every aspect of the program has contributed to my growth and healing.

As I bid farewell to Springboard, I carry with me the lessons learned, the friendships forged, and the renewed sense of hope for the future. I wholeheartedly recommend the Springboard program to anyone seeking support and guidance on their recovery journey. The welcoming environment, non-judgemental attitude, and endless support make Communify a sanctuary for healing and growth.

Thank you Communify, for being a guiding light on my path to recovery. May your values continue to inspire and empower individuals to embrace transformation and reclaim their lives.
