I recently sought help from my GP in relation to some problems I was experiencing with alcohol. I have recently has some problems with relationships and with work related isses and thing that I have been using alcohol to cope with my problems.
My GP referred me to Direct Access and I was very quickly given an appointment to see a worker there. I have found the meeting with my worker very positive. The help and advice I have been given has been very helpful in terms of me getting my drinking under control, hence I do not expect to be using the service for very long as I am now feeling much better.
I have found my worker to be very personable and approachable. The appointment booking system has proved to be very good.
