A new beginning – Clinton’s Fresh Start at a drug free life

"Last Christmas and New Year was the first I’ve been sober in over 20 years." Clinton is now drug free

That’s sixty days of being clean and counting for the 35 year old from South Hedland.

Clinton, of the Nalga and Yinhawangka Aboriginal tribes, says his life has been spared and he couldn’t be happier to be given a second chance.

“No one ever thought I’d do it – even I didn’t. The only reason I got here is because of my two kids. I’ve done it for them – they are my inspiration.”

After years of amphetamine, cannabis and alcohol abuse, losing his job was the last straw for Clinton. He went into a downward spiral, resulting in his wife of 11 years leaving him last October.

“I put my crack pipe away and started using syringes – that was rock bottom for me and it wasn’t pretty. That’s when my sister-in-law and brother enrolled me in the Fresh Start Programme.”

With the help of IBN Aboriginal Corporation, Clinton has been part of Fresh Start’s Northam Recovery Centre since December 2013 and has stopped using illicit drugs and alcohol after receiving treatment from Dr George O’Neil.
