"My amazing 5 week detox on promenade ward!"

I had been addict to prescription meds post surgery and I had been suffering for 2 plus years.

I went to the ward not knowing what I was about to face,but when I turned up the staff were great at settling you and easing those fears straight off.All the staff were great and nothing but supportive the whole time even when times were difficult. They do their up most to tend all your health needs and keeping you going the whole time.I can't thank the staff enough for giving me my life back! But at the same time I can't believe what sussex partnerships is about to do! I believe they are about to close promenade and dove wards in march,dispensing both of sussex detox wards! This is a disgrace and shame on the trust management!

There are so many out there that need this service,look at me what would I have done without the service? May be a few months and end up in a coffin!

A big thank you to all the staff you all do an amazing good.
