Client Story

Pete's Story

City Mission’s Serenity House offered me love and support while I detoxed from alcohol and drugs as well as providing me with basic counselling and options for me to further my recovery from addiction.

I chose to enter Missiondale’s Recovery Program where I have been able to start looking at all the core areas that underpinned my addiction. With help and guidance from God and the caring staff at Missiondale, my ambition to lead a happy and addiction-free life is becoming a reality.

Having time to reflect and having no distractions was most helpful [at Serenity House]. The staff are terrific.
