Max arrived at Alabaré's supported accommodation in Winter weighing only seven stone. He had just left hospital after recovered from liver failure, but with nowhere to go he was facing a life back on the streets. He had no contact with his family and all he cared about was alcohol, spending most of his money on cheap vodka and cider every day.
Max was referred to Alabaré by his local council and soon moved into our state of the art sheltered accommodation in Salisbury. With our support Max began to turn his life around.
“I didn’t really find myself until I got here. One of the doctors said to me at the hospital ‘If you keep on drinking the next time I see you, you will be in the morgue'. I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy what I have been through, but that is what the drink does to you - just a horrible vicious circle. I have had so much support and compassion from Alabaré. I couldn’t find it from my family but I found it here.These people have done so much for me. They have been absolutely fantastic.”
Thanks to the support of Alabaré and our dedicated support team Max is now sober and back in touch with his family. With his health recovering, he plans on moving out of our accommodation and getting a place of his own.
