In and out of juvenile detention as a youth, Leonard Ottone graduated to prison as a young man and eventually ended up in Pentridge where he continued to access drugs and maintain his habit. With the help of the other prisoners, Leonard finally learned to read and write as he struggled to write letters home to his family.
After many failed attempts, Leonard eventually recovered from his addiction and has established himself as an outreach professional, supporting others who struggle with addiction and successfully helping them to transform their lives.
He is the founder and CEO of Vicdor Living Centre, a not-for-profit organisation that provides support and service to people struggling to overcome substance abuse

Vicdor living centre is a not for profit organisation, providing intensive support to those seeking recovery. Preliminary contact is made through referrals, word of mouth and other means. At the initial consultation information is gathered and a treatment plan is formulated.
Treatment plans vary depending on the individuals needs, from counselling, referral to detox and rehabilitation services and introduction to self help groups.
Vicdor is run by volunteers, many who have overcome their own struggle with substance abuse.
Our philosophy is that those who are recovering from addiction are well qualified to support others facing similar challenges.
Vicdor is one of many organisations that provides support and service to people who are struggling to minimise the harm associated with substance abuse.
It takes a whole community to raise and support a person from the hell that is addiction.
Vicdor receives no funding from state or federal government,
so we rely on the generosity of people like you to keep doing what we do.
