Phillipe was living in a tent before he entered one of our houses. He has a background in hard drugs. He wrote the following before leaving our house and going for a bike ride round Britain:

7th February 2013 was the last time I took Methadone, which ended a long and sometimes dark relationship with hard drugs. This journey will help to completely cleanse me in body, mind and spirit; it’s part of me getting, and remaining, clean and getting away from temptation. As part of my spiritual journey I find a lot of peace in the great outdoors, being on my own will allow me to reflect and find myself. I just need to get away from prescription drugs like Methadone, and other drug users who try to tempt me. I want to find time to come into contact with God. I would like to find my real purpose in life, to find out who I am.
