If anyone who saw Ian when he came to Alpha House back in 2017 met him today, they would not believe he is the same person. With numerous health concerns that left him emaciated, hobbling around on crutches, Ian has gone through an amazing transformation.
With the support of Alpha House, Ian stopped his use of illicit substances and successfully detoxed from a 25-year opiate addiction. Since then, he has continued to grow in both his personal and professional life, transitioning from client, to volunteer, to paid staff member.
Not only through his permitted work for Alpha House, but also by playing an integral role in starting a new charity for ex-offenders, Ian is now showing his true potential in life.
