"Helping me in many ways"

About: Compass York / Compass One Compass York / Drug intervention programme

(as a service user),

Originally Compass helped me obtain a methadone prescription allowing me to live a more normal lifestyle and settle into the community. Then I pushed myself through college twice becoming a fully qualified computer repair technician (ICT system supports level 3) and now they are allowing me to volunteer there working in several different areas (mainly IT related) to obtain work experience and another reference.

Compass have been instrumental in helping me get away from drugs and drug culture in many many small and large things day in and day out for many years now, and quite simply I would NOT have been able to do any of it without the aid of two services in particular, one of which being Compass!

P.S. Thank you (compass) for your patience.
