I used Guernsey House for a number of years, my behaviour/punctuality for appointments was chaotic. My support worker, gave me the information and choices that were available to me, he was patient and supported me along my journey.
I detoxed using the Burbage Hospital, I then tried treatment in the community but needed to go to rehab to change my behaviour, attitude. I found this challenging and difficult but stuck with it.
After leaving rehab I volunteered with various services, did a triple therapy treatment trial for Hep C, which was successful. I have done an access course and start at Newcastle Northumbria University in Sep2012.
Today I use mutual aid groups, and today for the first time that I can remember I have choices, in what I do and how I live my life and what I do, and my journey started here at Guernsey House, Sheffield.
Today I am grateful for the people who never gave up on me.
