Success story of Limathung Ezung, recovering addict, Nagaland
Joining the G-86 project as a Peer Educator is like something unimaginable. Reflecting back at the years spent with drugs, I cannot imagine or believe my eyes as I see myself in a place where I can be proud of myself today. The treatment Centre at Bethesda Recovery Home for one and half years has helped me in many ways. While going through the program, I was able to build my confidence level and identify my capabilities. Thus I decided to dedicate myself to work in the field where I was once.
I am indeed happy working in this field as my fellow friends see me as a role model. I hope, I am able to counsel, motivate and educate them. So far I have formed one SHG and trying to form more support groups. I am trying my best to link up my fellow friends whom I come across during my project work with drug using program i.e. NA. I still have lot to learn to implement the project activities and therefore, capacity building training is what I need, as this is just the first and most important step to reach my destination.
