Testimonials

I have been on the Walk to Freedom programme for nearly ten months now on and off but by doing their programme I have found that it relates to my situation in a really good way. Sometimes I read the teachings and think that it is talking about me and my situation. I came to the Walk to Freedom because I had a problem with cocaine and cannabis but now I have stopped doing coke and cannabis for 8 months now. I really like the Walk to Freedom because I finally believe I have help from people who really know what I am going through.
— Rain Dancer
I heard about the Walk to Freedom and was interested in what they do. I had a friend who needed help, so I met with Mark and he told me about their programme he then took on my friend. I also realized that I had problems in coming to terms with my late sons ad-diction issues and through the Walk to Freedom realized I did all that I could to help my son. I value the Walk to Freedom and would recommend it to any-one that needs help or support.
