‘Recovery is a work in progress’ – Liz shares her story seeking help from Ormiston Families

Liz Ellis was a functioning alcoholic for 10 years. But her life spiralled out of control and she found herself in prison for theft, which led to serious mental health issues.

She said: “I was surrounded by drink and couldn’t stop myself, which could only lead to one thing, a breakdown. I lost everything, my home, my husband and my job. My consumption of alcohol was very high and so I stole to fuel my addiction as I wasn’t working. It makes me sad to think now.”
