Susan Smith is 29 years old. She has been addicted to alcohol since the age of 17. She has lost everything due to her addiction, her home, her job and her daughter the thing that hurts her the most is that she isn’t that bothered, of course she was hurt but in the end that cold litre of cider was her company what else did she need? Susan has tried many things to get her back on track, rehab, meetings, visiting Bella, the lost daughter that doesn’t want anything else but for her own mum to hold her in her arms.
Nothing has worked! Susan is a very needy person. Susan likes to be centre of attention but, she frightens everyone she meets, she needs help! Water makes up between 50 and 70% of an adult’s total body weight, regular top-ups are needed to balance the loss of water from the body in the form of urine and sweat. If we did not replace the water lost the body would not be able to survive. Dehydration will set in. o have a secure roof over her head. Food in her fridge and cupboards. Clean water so she is able to drink and bath.
Susan should also be able to feel safe in her home and not feel like a victim. To socialize with ‘normal’ people around the same age so she can feel accepted. To go back to school to get the grades to be able to get a job. She would like to become a councillor to her other addicts to get back on there feet. To build a strong bond between her and her daughter. She would like to get in a long-term relationship with the right man who will be able to care for her and support both financially and emotionally.
