Peter Lyndon-James’ seminar on ‘Drugs in the Workplace’ is a must-see for any employer or employee in Australia today. The rampant and wide-spread use of drugs in the workplace is unprecedented and results in life-changing damage to individuals, families, businesses and the community as a whole. With the media focussing on the disposable income of the mining boom and the ready availability of methamphetamine as the source of the issue – Peter Lyndon-James tells a very different story. A story that gives responsibility back to the addict and their choices as the only lasting way of affecting change.
Peter’s seminar speaks with brutal honesty about the reality of the issue, but more importantly explores the pathway he has found to a lasting solution.
About Peter Lyndon-James
Peter ’s vision is to bring holistic recovery to the lives of men, providing a long-term safe community for men pursuing a life free from addiction. Peter established the first Shalom House in the Swan Valley in 2012. He drew inspiration from his own life experience, recovering from a broken family and associated trauma. A ward of the State from age nine, Peter spent most of his childhood locked up or living on the streets. Growing up in a dysfunctional family unit, he felt unwanted, unloved and abandoned. At the age of 9 he was given a choice – “live with your Dad, or go to Longmore Children’s Home”.
Because of the hurt he experienced he made the choice and went to lock up. This was Peter’s first taste of a life behind bars and the beginning of a life that descended into crime and addiction.
