About: Phoenix Futures / Barnsley drug and alcohol services

(as the patient),

I first entered treatment in September 2010 due to a missed appointment, because of hard times it took me 3 months to get on a methadone script. I know I shouldn't have missed the appointment but I was extremely poorly. Once my treatment started I was given a very understanding care navigator who I found extremely easy to talk to about my treatment and about any problems I have.

I feel involved in my treatment and feel as though all staff involved in my treatment are pleasant and easy to talk to.

I do think that there should be less keyworker appointments, or maybe if the keyworker appointments were closer to home.

But apart from that I feel that everything involving my treatment is going well, I haven't touched drugs since my medication was at a level that was holding me, and I have no interest in drugs at all any more.

Thanks to the staff and doctors at Barnsley SMT. I am very grateful for your help and support!
