"I am now over 100 days sober"

About: Swanswell Loughborough

(as the patient),

I have a substance misuse worker for severe alcohol addiction. They listened and help me try and get the best control of the situation as I could.

I have severe mental health problems which were also always taken care of. I was treated as a whole person by my substance misuse worker, phone call duty workers and later in group situations I have been seen through and visited by my duty worker during an inpatient detox.

I am now over 100 days sober and continue to be cared for and supported by Swanswell in teaching me to live a safe and sober life.
