"This service has massively improved"

About: Addiction Dependency Solutions / Trafford Bridging the Gap Cheshire And Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

(as a service user),

I have been with this service for many years, it has improved massively in my opinion. I use drugs and alcohol and also have poor physical health. One of the nurses vivits me every two weeks which I feel has kept me in treatment by arranging appointments with the hospital and GP

Mick and Lisa are my support workers who also help, without this support I don't think I would be here, I think I would be dead.

I still use occassionally but don't inject anymore I only smoke sometimes.
