|Davina’s Ark, originated from an inspiring young woman whose life was affected by addiction and its effects. Addiction led Davina down a harrowing lonely, and a lot of times a despairing road. Davina experienced depression and addiction robbed her of joy and a zest for living and purpose. Davina entered a twelve-step programme which helped her become abstinent and see light at the end of the tunnel.
However, Davina found that further along the journey in recovery she still experienced emotional turmoil and difficulty in relationships with herself and others. Davina recognized that there was an unfulfilled need in rehabilitation support, ‘the gap’. Davina’s Ark offers hope and new opportunity to the many in our society who are afflicted and or affected by the curse of addiction. A shocking and sobering truth is that alcohol and drug misuse in our society is one of the biggest public health issues we have to address. There is not a single family in our society that isn’t somehow impacted by the negative effects of addiction.
