From High-Functioning to Healing: A Client Case Study

From High-Functioning to Healing: A Client Case Study

Meet Jack*, a finance manager in his late 40s. On the surface, Jack seemed to have it all—a successful career, a loving family, and a bustling social life. But beneath this facade, Jack was struggling with addiction to alcohol, cocaine, and gambling. Although we've changed Jack's name to protect his privacy, he has permitted us to share his story.

Jack's Background:

For years, Jack managed to juggle his demanding job, family responsibilities, and social commitments while hiding his addiction. By day, he excelled in his career, earning respect and admiration from his colleagues. By night, he turned to alcohol, cocaine, and gambling as an escape. Despite his outward success, Jack felt trapped in a cycle he couldn't break free from.

Recognition of the Problem:

Jack's turning point came when he found himself in a dangerous situation. He had accumulated significant debt with some very threatening people, and his life felt like it was spiralling out of control. It was then that Jack realised he needed help before things got even worse. This moment of clarity led him to acknowledge the severity of his addiction and the urgent need for change.


"I was sitting alone in my apartment, knowing I owed money to people who wouldn't think twice about hurting me. I realised I couldn't keep living this way, and I was distraught that I might have put my family at risk too. I needed help before it was too late."


Decision to Attend Outpatient Rehab:

With support from his family and a close friend, Jack decided to seek professional help. He chose outpatient rehab because it allowed him to get the help he needed without disrupting his career. The flexibility of attending sessions while continuing to work was crucial for Jack, making outpatient rehab the perfect fit.

Life After Outpatient Rehab:

Jack's journey through Reset My Future was challenging but transformative. With the guidance of his counsellor and the support of his family, Jack learned to address his addictive behaviours and develop healthier coping mechanisms. He began to rebuild his life, focusing on his sobriety and reconnecting with his loved ones.

Reflecting on his journey, Jack shares,


"At my worst, I felt completely stuck and unsafe. Now, I’m finally living the life I’ve always wanted. Sobriety has given me back my career, my family, and my happiness. The support I received made all the difference, and I’m thriving in ways I never thought possible."


Jack's story is a testament to the power of seeking help and the possibility of recovery. If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, remember that it's never too late to seek help.
