Formerly Community Northern Beaches

Brian was born addicted to heroin. The abuse and neglect he sustained from his primary caregivers and later the institutions that were put in place to “protect” him compounded over time, leaving him little to no hope of a normal future. As a grown man, Brian still struggles with addiction and the trauma of his past. Brian says that LocalKind is the only place he can go that offers a non-judgmental safe space for him to be himself. It has been a long road for Brian and LocalKind, but with the support of our staff, Brian entered himself into a detox/rehabilitation facility this week.
