"The detox was a positive stepping stone"

About: North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust / Addiction services

(as the patient),

It was a very difficult decision to make with nerves and anxiety. The detox was the best decision I had made in over 15 years of alcohol addiction. The staff at Edward Myers have been friendly and helpful from day one. I had a 2 week stay and I'm happier and more confident. Its a really good positive stepping stone towards my full rehabilitation. Its nice to go and not be judged, as addiction could happen to anyone from all walks of life.
